Temporary files

The HCL Workload Automation master domain manager uses temporary files, located in <TWA_home>/TWS/tmp or /tmp and named TWS<XXXX>, when compiling new production control databases. These files are deleted when compiling is complete.

This directory also contains the HCL Workload Automation installation files and log files, it is primarily used to handle temporary files that composer CLI creates as a work repository when it is invoked to perform CRUD actions against the HCL Workload Automation modeling objects. Directory rights are set to 777 to allow all users running the composer to have access. For security reasons the composer CLI is defined by using the sticky bit, so the files it creates can be owned by users different from the HCL Workload Automation installation user. HCL Workload Automation conman can be used by any user therefore the folder is 777. If the users eligible to use conman/composer are inserted into the HCL Workload Automation group then the permission can be set to 774. In that way, only these users will be able to run conman/composer commands
