Import CloudInit drive with Web UI

Hi everyone,

Is it possible to import a cloudinit drive (Debian 11) with only using Web UI ? Without any cli command.

I have a user wich can create VM on Proxmox on a node (it works with WebUI), but he cannot create VM and import drive in CLI on the same node, he has this error:


I suppose that is because he is not on the root account, even if he has rights to create VM on Web UI.

So, is there a way to import cloudinit drive directly with Web UI ?

Thx !
