#1 Updated by Brett Smith almost 4 years ago

  • Subject changed from python-arvados-fuse documentation to [Documentation] FUSE documentation should note granting FUSE permissions
  • Category set to Documentation
  • Story points set to 0.5

Users must have express permission to use any FUSE mount, including arv-mount. On most distributions, this is done by adding the user to the fuse group. Our documentation should note this as part of the setup process.
