How to configure a systemd user service in pulseway?

Recommended Posts

By default pulseway reccognizes the systemd services running as root.

i want to configure a service which is running as the current user...

the service is started using the command "systemctl --user start servicename"

the service is placed in the directory "/etc/systemd/user/servicename.service"


I have tried using the systemd option in pulseway config, but it is not recognized.

Hi @Milind Patel,

Usually, Pulseway runs the scripts as a root system account and not as a user account. You can try the below method and see if it works for you.

---> On the remote machine, please consider configuring the PowerShell impersonation by remoting into that affected machine, then launch Pulseway Manager -> Settings -> Runtime. 

Please enter the username and password on this field on the affected system.

If the affected machine is on a domain, domain-level credentials should be used. 

If it is not on a domain, you can use the local admin account credentials and leave the domain field blank.

You may refer to the below screenshot. 


Once you have the Powershell impersonation configured on Pulseway Manager, wait for 2-3 minutes, then run the command/script through Pulseway Webapp.
