Before you begin

If you have already started Jobs from this server, it is recommended to remove the directory <jobserver_path>/TalendJobServerFiles to avoid unexpected authorizations on already deployed Jobs or cached files.


  1. Add each user allowed to run tasks (for example, user called subuser) to the 'root' group as well as to the group of the user who owns the parent directories of Talend JobServer (for example, group of the user called myuser), such as:
    > sudo usermod -a -G myuser_group subuser
    > sudo usermod -a -G root subuser
  2. Give the permissions execute to myuser_group in the following directories by executing the command chmod g+rx /<directory_path>:
    Note that the read authorization for the group is only required for deployed files.
