Cloud operator responsibilities

By default, users with the cloud_operator role can perform operator actions on any virtual resource.

Cloud operators perform the following tasks:
  • If catalog item is set for manual approval, then a cloud operator approves or rejects change requests that are associated with requests from users to provision cloud resources.
  • Resolve errors that occur during provisioning or when modifying an existing virtual machine.
  • Perform activities on behalf of cloud users: Change the state of a cloud resource to start, stop, or pause; terminate VMs; take and restore snapshots.
