ONTAP Tools for VMware - Adding VSC privileges to custom vCenter role

The role named "VSC Provision" has these custom privileges that appear to be added that apply only for ONTAP:

NetApp ONTAP tools for VMware vSphere

  • View

privilege.nvpfVSC.Kamino.Datastore.com.netapp.nvpf.label

  • Manage datastores
  • Provision

privilege.nvpfVSC.VASAGroup.com.netapp.nvpf.label

 
  • View

 

I have tried adding these privs to a custom vcenter role we created for users that are allowed to do most things a power user in vCenter would be able to do but they can't seem to use OTV at all. When they go to the OTV plugin, they can't see anything at all. If I change the role for the user to the "VCS Provision" role and log into vcenter again, they can see what they need to see. So, what privilege  is actually being missed? What special thing is happening that OTV is missing or looking for that I'm not noticing?

That sounds odd. Just to test, I created a new user and assigned them the VSC Provision role. I was able to create an NFS datastore with no issues.

 

Here is what my role looks like:
