Unable to assign network bridge to VM (missing permission?)


Sep 16, 2020
Hello all,

I have created a new user "Test" which belongs to the group "TechnicalAdmin". This group was added to a resource pool "TST" and given these permissions:


As user "Test" I can create a VM, access the ISO storage, assign a specific storage to the VM disk, in short do everything I need to create and manage a VM in this pool, but I cannot add a Linux bridge to the VM. (see screenshot below)


Am I missing any further permissions for this or have I not taken something else into account? I use Proxmox 8.0.4. btw.

Many thanks in advance!

Greetings Sebastian
At first glance it does look good, but could you pls print the paths as well as they could be the reason
AFAICT you'd have to create a permission for PATH:/vms with SDN.Use, SDN.Allocate and SDN.Audit to be able to see and use existing SDN settings (bridges etc.) when creating a new VM.
Your current permission set only allows to change settings von the vms [100,102,103] and all the vms in the /pool/TST (and all the vms in /storage/local and /storage/pve01-local-storage)
