Validate the addition of the user after having added him/her to the "users" group.

Allocation of rights

In order for this user to be able to do the checks, he must be assigned read-only rights.

To do this, go to the following menu:

ServiceNav - VMware - Rights Allocation

Click "Add Permission".

Once this window is open select the role.

ServiceNav - VMware - read-only rights selection

Click on "Add..."

Select the user you previously created and add him/her.

ServiceNav - VMware - selecting the user on which to apply read-only rights

 

 

 

Once the user has been added, click "OK".

Validate the assignment of read-only permissions.

You can now configure service templates in the supervision with the user you just created. The operation has to be repeated for each hypervisor.

To save time, add this user directly to the supervision account:

  • VMware for hypervisors
  • VMware vCenter for the vCenter
