Auto Deploy privileges control who can perform different tasks on Auto Deploy rules, and who can associate a host. Auto Deploy privileges also allow you to control who can create or edit an image profile.

The table describes privileges that determine who can manage Auto Deploy rules and rule sets and who can create and edit image profiles. See vSphere Installation and Setup.

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.
