Talend Cloud Management Console allows you to run tasks as different UNIX system users, through the Run As option.

To avoid errors when starting the task on the server, you need first to:

  • Give specific permissions to some server directories.
  • Give necessary authorizations to the directories and files created by Talend Remote Engine by configuring the umask.
  • Define the operating system users allowed to run tasks from the server.
  • Ensure that the impersonated user has access to the Java installation used by the engine.

The user impersonation option is also available for Remote Engine cluster. All engines in the cluster must be configured according to these instructions.
