Configuring Self-Service in VMM
Applies To: System Center 2012 SP1 - Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 R2 Virtual Machine Manager, System Center 2012 - Virtual Machine Manager
The procedures in this section explain how to create a self-service user role that can create, deploy, and use virtual machines and services on one or more private clouds in Virtual Machine Manager (VMM). The procedures also explain how to share VMM resources as a self-service user, if permissions have been set up for you to share these resources with other self-service users.
As of System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 (SP1), the VMM Self-Service Portal has been removed. If you need a self-service portal solution, we recommend that you use App Controller. For more information, see App Controller.
