vRealize Operations Manager provides several predefined roles to assign privileges to users. You can also create your own roles.

You must have privileges to access specific features in the vRealize Operations Manager user interface. The roles associated with your user account determine the features you can access and the actions you can perform.

Each predefined role includes a set of privileges for users to perform create, read, update, or delete actions on components such as dashboards, reports, administration, capacity, policies, problems, symptoms, alerts, user account management, and adapters.

Administrator

Includes privileges to all features, objects, and actions in vRealize Operations Manager.

ReadOnly

Users have read-only access and can perform read operations, but cannot perform write actions such as create, update, or delete.

PowerUser

Users have privileges to perform the actions of the Administrator role except for privileges to user management and cluster management. vRealize Operations Manager maps vCenter Server users to this role.

PowerUserMinusRemediation

Users have privileges to perform the actions of the Administrator role except for privileges to user management, cluster management, and remediation actions.

ContentAdmin

Users can manage all content, including views, reports, dashboards, and custom groups in vRealize Operations Manager

GeneralUser-1 through GeneralUser-4

These predefined template roles are initially defined as ReadOnly roles. vCenter Server administrators can configure these roles to create combinations of roles to give users multiple types of privileges. Roles are synchronized to vCenter Server once during registration.

AgentManager

Users can deploy and configure Endpoint Operations Management agents.
