Installation → Running Deployment Automation → Starting and Stopping an Agent → Permission for Users Running Agents
Each agent needs the appropriate permission to communicate with the Deployment Automation server.
For production environments, Serena recommends creating a user account dedicated to running the agent on the machine where the agent is installed.
For simple evaluations, the administrative user can run the agent on the machine where the server is located.
At a minimum, the user running the agent should have permission to do the following:
Create a cache. By default, the cache is located in the home directory of the user running the agent. The cache can be moved or disabled.
Open a TCP connection. The agent uses a TCP connection to communicate with the server's JMS port.
Open a HTTP(S) connection. The agent must be able to connect to the Deployment Automation user interface to download artifacts from CodeStation.
Access the file system. Many agents need read/write permission to items on the file system.
