How to manage VMware Cloud Director permissions in the UKCloud Portal
In the UKCloud Portal, you can control the access that a Portal user has to the different virtual data centres (VDCs) in your organisation.
To complete the steps in this article you must be a Portal administrator.
User roles and access rights
For a list of the access rights each user role has, see the Rights in Predefined Global Tenant Roles VMware article.
API Only role
UKCloud for VMware includes an API Only role that restricts users with VMware Cloud Director permissions to accessing VMware Cloud Director solely via the API, with no tenant portal access.
If you select the API Only role, you must also select one of the VMware Cloud Director roles (Admin, Catalogue Author, vApp Author, vApp User or Console Only). You should not select the API Only role on its own.
To configure permissions for a Portal user:
Log in to the UKCloud Portal as an administrator.
In the Portal navigation panel, expand the Contacts option and select All Contacts.
On the Contacts page, locate the account of the user to whom you want to assign or revoke permissions and then click the Edit button.
On the Edit contact page, select the Permissions tab.
In the Permissions for UKCloud for VMware section, you'll see a list of VDCs and the associated user roles available for the Portal user.
Select the role you want to assign to the user, then scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save.
