Section Number and Name: 

1.4.1. Adding a VMware vCenter Provider

Describe the issue: 

Step 7 reads:

n the Credentials area, under Default, provide the login credentials required for the VMware vCenter administrative user:

But according to https://access.redhat.com/articles/320543 you do not need to use an administrative user, you can use a non administrative user.

Suggestions for improvement: 

create a new section which outlines how to create a non administrative user as per https://access.redhat.com/articles/320543 and add it to 1.4.1

Additional information: 

Using https://access.redhat.com/articles/320543 has been tested and is known to work with 4.2

Per conversation with Brad in the 3 July triage meeting, we're closing this as WONTFIX for the reasons given above.
