    I want to be informed about any change of permissions in vCenter. But unfortunately I can't find the right approach. There is only the status change. But unfortunately there is no description about it ...

    See https://williamlam.com/2021/11/monitoring-vsphere-account-password-permission-changes.html which leverages vCenter Events which contains the details you're looking for

    I was hoping to solve this with the vCenter Alarms. But apparently this is not possible? Thanks for the tip. I would test the tool first. Can this be used without hesitation in a production environment?

    You can do this with Log Insight and then either send an email or forward it to vROps, Zabbix can also monitor these kinds of changes and trigger alerts accordingly.

    It really works and was configured in 5 minutes.
