Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 804205
Allocate a 'elasticsearch' username and groupname
Last modified: 2012-06-20 08:23:53 EDT
For the upcoming system engine product, we need a reserved user and group of
'elasticsearch' for the service we are running.
package that creates it: elasticsearch
Do you really need this static id reservation? Rpmdiff failure is only indicator - static id is required for network facing/communicating system accounts and daemons handling sensitive data - is it the case of this system account? If not, rpmdiff failure could be waived (static id range is limited).
"Rpmdiff failure is only indicator - static id is required for network facing/communicating system accounts and daemons handling sensitive data"
I believe this is the case. This is a network service that is holding user and system information, so I would consider that 'sensitive data'.
I don't know that this is Z-stream worthy either. As long as a UID is picked, we can use that UID knowing it will be reserved in the future.
Thanks, I'll reserve 183:183 for elasticsearch. Removing z-stream request...
