Hello everyone, when I try to run the command ./AxonIvyEngine i got the following error:

Cannot start the engine with user 'root'. Please run it with a normal user such as 'ivy'.

How can I fix this issue, is it necessary to create separate user to do it.

It is in general bad practice to operate a service as root. But it is good practice to run service with a special user for instance to restrict areas where the user is allowed to operate with the file system. So yes, you have to create a separate user to operate the engine securely.

This is also covered in our getting stared guide: https://developer.axonivy.com/doc/latest/EngineGuideHtml/gettingstarted.html#gettingstarted-linux
