For production installations, we recommend that you create a new dedicated user that will run Stash on your system. This user:

  • Should be local.
  • Should not have admin privileges.
  • Should be a non-privileged user with read, write and execute access on the Stash install directory and home directory.
  • Should only have read access to your repositories. 

See also Running Stash as a Windows service and Running Stash as a Linux service.

For Linux, here is an example of how to create a dedicated user to run Stash:

$ sudo /usr/sbin/useradd --create-home --home-dir /usr/local/Stash --shell /bin/bash Stash
