Using Operating System Profiles

Using Operating System Profiles

You can configure the Data Integration Service to use the permissions of the default operating system profile assigned to a user to perform operations initiated by the user.
You can assign a user a default operating system profile. If a user belongs to a group, the user inherits the default operating system profile of the group. If the user belongs to multiple groups with different default operating system profiles, the user can have multiple operating system profiles. The Data Integration Service cannot determine which profile to use for the user and cannot perform any operation initiated by the user.
Use the following guidelines when you assign an operating system profile to a user:
  • A user must have only one default operating system profile.
  • A user that is not assigned a default operating system profile cannot belong to multiple groups with multiple default operating system profiles.
  • To avoid conflicts in group and user permissions, create a group that includes all users who require the same profile and assign a default operating system profile to the group.
