Documentation: NOTE in section UC_HOSTCHAR_DEFAULT / FE_VERSION is ambiguous


Article ID: 87575


Updated On:


CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine


Error Message :

In the documentation, the wording of the NOTE in section UC_HOSTCHAR_DEFAULT | FE_VERSION is ambiguous.
This will not change as the meaning of the values is clearly stated.

Some additional explanation:

In the documentation, under UC_HOSTCHAR_DEFAULT / FE_Version, the NOTE states the following:
"In order to execute a FileSystem Event object with a UNIX agent under a different user specified in a Login object, this key has to be set to "2"."

To clarify:
If FE_VERSION=1 is set, the Fileevent will run from the user that is set in the Agent, for example 'root'. 
When using FE_Version=2, the Fileevent will use the USER that is set in the Login Object.
