[HTCondor-users] Remapping users between SCHEDD and STARTD


Is it possible to remap users between SCHEDD and STARTD?

Bob submits a jobs to a local scheduler. An execute node runs Bob's job as a local user Alice.

On the one hand, this example seems like a common scenario. But on the other hand, the following manual excerpt implies that it's not possible to have that kind of setup...

"If the $(UID_DOMAIN) on the submitting machine is different than the $(UID_DOMAIN) on the machine that runs a job, then HTCondor runs the job as the user nobody. (...)
If the $(UID_DOMAIN) is the same on both the submit and execute machines, then HTCondor will run the job as the user that submitted the job."
