@anonfunc It is a pity that whether or not to create the user cannot be configured. It occurs to me that you could make another telegraf-static package with the user creation (or turn this one back and create a telegraf-dynamic).

@ogarcia That's correct (even if the official documentation does rely on sudo to make collectors like smart working). I think I just mention it here for completeness, maybe someone has run into the same problem. I already applied DynamicUser=No as overwrite on my machines.

@anonfunc I know, but in a default Telegraf setup you don't need elevated privileges and the idea is to make the package as simple as possible and leave as little trace as possible after uninstalling it.

However, if you are interested in not using a dynamic user, it is easy:

sudo useradd -r -d / -s /usr/bin/nologin telegraf
sudo systemctl edit telegraf.service

And in the edition add:


With this you have telegraf running with a real user and it is persistent to reboots and package updates.

Using DynamicUser in the service file breaks using telegraf with sudo based privilege escalation, since it implies NoNewPrivileges=yes and this cannot be disabled while DynamicUser is on. (see for more)

@hashworks fixed (again). If this happens again I'll do that you said, attach the version to a fixed commit istead of tag.

Checksum fails with 1.18.3 again – if upstream keeps overwriting version tags you might want to pin the commit hash.

@nogweii sure? I get 19856eef5762c0740f3531d5c4d55e25d8a9de34278ee6e1dcef49dfd48942e1

There seems to be another checksum failure, why would they keep rebuilding the binary over and over.

@jhass, fixed. Seems that the guys at InfluxData rebuild the source binary and changed the checksum.

Checksum fails for me with 1.18.2, I get 19856eef5762c0740f3531d5c4d55e25d8a9de34278ee6e1dcef49dfd48942e1
