When AutoMate accesses restricted or secured resources such as network shares, it runs as the "LocalSystem" user unless a service user has been specified. The File Trigger, task database location, and default task location are directly affected by the access permissions of the service user.
To avoid the permission limitations of the local user, you can set a default service user that AutoMate will impersonate when accessing secured or restricted resources.
From the System menu in the Task Administrator window, select Options.
Click the Service User tab (displayed below).
Enter the properties as follows:
The user name of the service user. This can be either a plain user name (i.e. "sparky"), or a user name/domain combination (i.e. "email@example.com") When the latter form is used, the domain field is disabled
The password to be used with the service user name specified above. This option can be blank if no password is associated with the selected user.
The domain or machine name for which the user is a member. This option can be left blank if the user is not a member of a domain or if there is only one workgroup for the machine.
