Required permissions for Intigua vCenter / vSphere user

Intigua can use a reduced set of permissions for the vCenter / vSphere integration user rather than requiring a full admin account.

The minimum permissions are (see screenshot from vCenter below):

  • Guest operation modifications
  • Guest operation program execution
  • Guest operation queries
  • For VIX only, not needed for vSphere:
    Guest operating system management by VIX API

This has been verified with vCenter 5.1 & 5.5, older versions have a different set of permissions.
