supplemental_groups — security: supplemental groups to assume after startup


This security feature instructs Momentum to issue a setgroups system call to set the supplemental groups for the Momentum process. This allows more flexibility for granting Momentum access to resources that are restricted based on group membership.

Security { Supplemental_Groups = ( "list of group names or ids" )

Allow binding to privileged ports without requiring a process restart

Capabilities = "cap_net_bind_service+ep" }


Changing the value of options in the security scope at runtime requires restarting the ecelerity process—issuing the ec_console command config reload will not suffice.


Supplemental_Groups is valid in the security scope.
