Running Passwordstate service under non-personal account instead of System without local admin rights


Recommended Posts


For a customer I am installing and automating the install of Passwordstate.

I would like to use a non-personal account for this, without having to give this account local administrator permissions.
Is there a guide as to what permissions this account is going to need (i.e. User Rights Assignments and NTFS permissions etc.)?

Thank you in advance!

Kind regards,

Thanks for your reply!


This is on Windows, I made a domain account and gave it the Logon as a service User Right and also NTFS permissions on the PasswordState directory.
But it is unable to start. When I make the account local admin, everything is fine.

So apparently there are some more permissions required, but I can not find anything in the manual.

The default is running it as SYSTEM, which we don't want to do because of security considerations.
