Details

Currently, the pulse notification service is running as user "hg."

Security best practices say we should have a separate user for each service. So let's create a new, dedicated user for running the pulse notification service.

How about "hg-pulsenotifier"?
We also have another service for aggregating the push data. This creates the queue that the pulse notifier consumes. We could potentially share a user (hg-notifier) or use separate users.

I'll let fubar decide :)
hgssh3.dmz.scl3# id hg-notifier
uid=5603(hg-notifier) gid=5603(hg-notifier) groups=5603(hg-notifier)
