Re: [HTCondor-users] jobs getting run as nobody

Hi Michael,

Just a thought - 

- Use the START _expression_ of the worker node to reject any job where RunAsOwner is false.  That works today in almost any version of HTCondor.
- You can use SUBMIT_REQUIREMENTS to enforce RunAsOwner to be set as true at submit time.
- 8.5.2 will have the concept of âimmutable attributesâ: attributes that can only be changed by the sysadmin.  This prevents further qedits post-submit.

Iâm sure you found it but hereâs the relevant section in the manual.

Speaking of which, is there a "starter_REQUIRE_runas_owner" knob? Under classified information systems every action on a system must be accountable to the individual who took the action, and thus far that's been easiest to accomplish by having jobs on exec nodes run under the submitters' accounts.

I've been using a system periodic hold based on runas_owner=false in the job ClassAd to enforce that, but if there's an easier way I haven't found it yet.
