      Description

      Deprecation

      • The setuid utility is no longer used as it is considered a security risk.
      • There are several alternative ways how to access files owned by a different user:
        • use of Agents that can be operated to run in multiple instances for different accounts from the same Agent installation
        • use of operating system permissions, e.g. ACLs, to allow access to a file
        • use of sudo and su to switch the user context

      Deprecation History

      • Release 1.9: deprecated
      • Release 1.10: unsupported
      • Release 1.11: removed
