Description of problem:

as a DataCenterAdmin I was trying to add user permissions on objects under the DC (quota and vm's). I got a CanDoAction that user is not permitted to perfor action 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a user and assign it with DataCenterAdmin role. 
2. login to the admin portal
3. add a vm -> try to assign a user under the vm -> permissions tab
Actual results:

we are getting CanDoAction 

Expected results:

Data Center Admin should be allowed to add permissions on objects.

why would creator roles need this permission? the created object would be created with an owner permission?

The creator will indeed become the owner (have UserVmManager role on the created VM, and TemplateOwner on the created template template).

However, as a UserVmManager, he won't be able to add permission to other people (unless we decide to include the UserVmManager, and the TemplateOwner in the list of roles that have AddPermission action group).

miki - for which roles? it seems no one in the field is using our roles that way as this is the current status and no one complained about this?

oved - please discuss with Alon - I find UserVmManager a very strange default ownership role if it doesn't contain permission manipulation for object creator.
please check behavior for disks as well.
