Storage Views privileges control privileges for Storage Monitoring Service APIs. Starting with vSphere 6.0, storage views are deprecated and these privileges no longer apply to them.

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.
