Host inventory privileges control adding hosts to the inventory, adding hosts to clusters, and moving hosts in the inventory.

The table describes the privileges required to add and move hosts and clusters in the inventory.

You can set this privilege at different levels in the hierarchy. For example, if you set a privilege at the folder level, you can propagate the privilege to one or more objects within the folder. The object listed in the Required On column must have the privilege set, either directly or inherited.
