Setting profile attributes for clients

The Centrify Client for Linux is a software package you can install on Linux computers to support service-to-service password management and authentication services for Privileged Access Service users. To support these features, the client has a service user account. The service user requires some additional settings to have a valid profile on the Linux computer where services run or where you are authorizing client-based authentication for access.

To set profile attributes for the client service user:

  1. In the Admin Portal > Settings > Enrollment to display the settings available for Privileged Access Service.
  2. Click Linux Settings.
  3. Select a default shell from the list of available shells to use for the client service user.
  4. Specify the template to use for the home directory for the client service user.
  5. Click Save.
