StudioWorkspace Instance / AppDeployment Instance

  • No need to do any configurations. The Platform will do it automatically.

The ssh user does not have privileges install/upgrade utility software

Platform Instance

usermod -aG docker <user>
chown -R <user>:<user> /wm-data

StudioWorkspace Instance / AppDeployment Instance

The given ssh user does not have permission to install software Then install below as per the operating system.

  • If the user given to the Platform doesn't have privileged access, then provide below permission for the user given on StudioWorkspace Instance / AppDeployment Instance.
  • Create a user group if not present in StudioWorkspace Instance / AppDeployment Instance .
sudo groupadd <user>
  • Have to execute these commands from privileged users.

    • Add user to the docker group.
    • Make the user as an owner for the docker systemd process.
    • data directory should be owned by the user.

    chown -R <user>:<user> /etc/systemd/system/docker.service.d
    chown -R <user>:<user> /data
    echo "%<user> ALL=NOPASSWD: /bin/systemctl restart docker,/bin/systemctl daemon-reload,/sbin/iptables" >> /etc/sudoers.d/<sudoers-file-name>

RHEL

The ssh user has privileges (root/sudo) or user doesn't have privileges for install/upgrade utility softwares
