ActiveIQ Unified Manager Least Privilege Account

ActiveIQ Unified Manager documentation says the following about the local account used for discovery:

 

------------------------------------

This account must have the admin role with Application access set to ontapi, ssh, and http.

------------------------------------

 

My question: is this really accurate? I don't see why it requires the admin role since AIUM is just reading data to populate charts and tables. Anyone have insight here? We are trying to reduce service accounts to the least amount of permissions needed and I'm thinking this is a good candidate for reduction, but documentation says otherwise.

Okay thank you @Mjizzini. Are there any recommendations to securing this account since it has to have these rights?
