I need to run a powershell script as a specific ldap user. The powershell script is executed from within the project:
Code: Select all
<project name="HR Import" mainModule="Main" version="2.0">
	<module name="Main">
		<exec label="Execute Powershell Script with Parameters" executable="C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe" workingDir="C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0" inputFile="C:\Linoma_Scripts\HR_Import\empty.txt" version="1.0" logLevel="debug">
			<arg value="-File" />
			<arg value="C:\Linoma_Scripts\HR_Import\HR_Import.ps1" />
			<arg value="-ExecutionPolicy" />
			<arg value="Bypass" />
	<description>Execute a PowerShell script to import information</description>

The script appears to be currently executed as the machine account. is there any way to change this to another user account?

GoAnywhere will automatically use the UserID used to start the GoAnywhere Service as the user running the local command.

I would suggest that you change the GoAnywhere Service under the Logon Tab and have GoAnywhere started by a Service Domain Account that has the permissions you need to execute the powershell script.

Remember, that Domain Account must have permissions to start GoAnywhere as a service and run the program as well.
