We would like to use Upstart to manage a Java process and run it as non-root using sudo. We are on RHEL 6 which means that Upstart is too old to allow us to explicitly specify a user hence the use of sudo.
However, the Sudo configuration file specifies
Defaults requiretty which means we can't run
sudo -u to launch the command as a non-root user. We get the following error
sudo: sorry, you must have a tty to run sudo
Is there a way to get Upstart to allocate a pseudo TTY so that sudo will allow us to launch this process? The sudoers file is set according company policy and we are unable to change it.
