Command tcl.config.security Menu/TCL
Applicable release versions: AP 6.0
Category TCL (746)
Description enters the Update processor to show the 'user' and 'groups' definition of the virtual machine: "Unix User name"
This optional field contains the name of a valid Unix user, called the 'owner' of the virtual machine. It is strongly recommended to not leave this field empty, otherwise all users connected to the virtual machine effectively have root access to all the resources of the Unix system, which is a security risk. When the user is defined, it becomes the 'owner' of the virtual machine. All users allowed to be connected to the virtual machine become this user, as far as Unix is concerned. The Unix administrator should give proper authority to this special user so that all Pick users can use the required Unix resources (communications, access to Unix files, etc...).

"Authorized Unix groups"

This optional field contains the list of the Unix group(s) to which a Unix user must belong to be granted access to the virtual machine. To enter more than one group, type <ctrl>+v at the end of each entry to open a new line. If the group list is empty, then all users have access to the virtual machine.
