user group permissions jama 8.x

    Per jama documentation in the user guide section migrating existing data.

    ** replace 91:91 with your server's corresponding user:group

    When installing jama there is no account we use except our own personal account or root to perform the install. With Jama running in docker containers is there a user:group we should be using or is there a local account we should be setting up with access to these folders on the CentOS box?

    This statement is a bit unclear with the install process of Jama using docker now.

    Hey Nick,

    It sounds like we might need to clarify the user guide. From my understanding, if they installed Jama as root, the the files in /data/contour should also be owned by root. Does that answer the question?

    Yes, but what is the recommended practice then. Should jama be installed under a generic account with sudo rights and not as an individual user then or root is acceptable in this new model?

    Hi Nick,

    At this time, our recommendation is to install and run Jama as the root user. We do not recommend installing Jama as a different user. Our user guide unfortunately is misleading and inaccurate.

    The permissions for the /data folder actually must be configured with permissions for the user and group 91:91. This is because jamacore runs as a tomcat user with a pre-defined user ID 91.

    Thank you for pointing this out and generating a discussion. I will be updating our guide so that this information is correct and clear.
