InTime Agents

Why are Agents picking up jobs submitted by other users?

Cause:

In a Private Cloud setup, the default for job assignment is not to differentiate between users – any Agent started by user A can accept jobs submitted by user B.

Resolution:

To prevent Agents started by user A from picking up jobs submitted by user B, do the following in the Private Cloud Console.

user> .admin
admin> .server.properties.set.MATCHUSER_FLAG=yes
Proceed to set server configuration? ('y' for Yes or 'n' for No) [y]

admin.confirm> y

admin> .server.properties
+-----+------------+-------------------------+--------------------------------------+
| NO. | READ/WRITE | KEY                     | VALUE                                |
+-----+------------+-------------------------+--------------------------------------+
| 14  | R/W        | MATCHUSER_FLAG          | YES                                  |
+-----+------------+-------------------------+--------------------------------------+

If the InTime Server is restarted, it will revert to the default behavior. To save the setting permanently, start InTime Server with this argument.

$ ./start_server.sh -matchuser yes
