vmWare vCenter Server - permissions


We have the MSP version of LM. We have a vCenter dashboard in a customer group, which is a duplicate of the default vCenter dashboard.

When I login (I am an LM admin) I can see all the widgets okay. When the customer logs in, they can only see some of the widgets. But ‘see the widgets’, I mean they all show but some of them say ‘Group not found’ for the customer only. We are accessing exactly the same dashboard.

    Tokens are like variables/properties that you can assign to the dashboard or dashboard group letting you more easily template dashboards, cloning them across multiple customers for example.
