VMware vRealize Automation limited user permission “additions”

I’ve been implementing vRA 7.1 HA install.  There are many facets to the install and one of the items VMware publishes is a vCenter “bind” account with necessary permissions.   Here is the article.

Three permissions for two items different scenarios.  Besides the permissions mentioned in the article,

  1. To run vRO workflows and “Run programs in Guest” operations

There following permission are needed

  • VirtualMachine > GuestOperations > Execute

2.  To use Code Stream “Houdini Management Pack”, required two permissions to run capture vSphere templates

  • vApp > Import
  • VirtualMachine > Provisioning > MarkAsTemplate

When troubleshooting, manually log into vCenter being used by vRA as your “bind” ID and test operations.

Hope this helps!
