User and Group for Service Start

When you run Transformer as a service, Transformer runs as the system user account and group defined in environment variables. The default system user and group are named transformer.

You can modify the values of the environment variables to point to another system user or group.

If you change the system user, you must make the new system user the owner of all Transformer directories:
For example, if you change the system user and group to myuser, use the following command to change the owner of the configuration directory, $TRANSFORMER_CONF, and all files in the directory to myuser:myuser:
chown -R myuser:myuser /etc/transformer
Note: When you run Transformer manually, Transformer runs as the system user account logged into the command prompt when the launch command is run. To run as another user account, see Starting Transformer Manually.
