To update a user or groups permissions to an existing role with reduced permissions do the following:

From the vSphere Web Client go to Administration >> Access Control >> Global Permissions. Select the user or group and click "Edit" and change the assigned role and click "OK". If permissions are assigned on a specific object then the role must be updated where it is assigned for example at the cluster level.

To create a new role with reduced permissions do the following:

From the vSphere Web Client go to Administration >> Access Control >> Roles. Click the green plus sign and enter a name for the role and select only the specific permissions required. Users can then be assigned to the newly created role.
