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).

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.
