SELinux support for DevOps Deploy (formally known as UrbanCode Deploy)

Currently, DevOps Deploy v8., on RHEL 8.8, with SELinux status set to enforcing mode. The DevOps Deploy does not run in a "confined" context, currently running in the  "unconfined_service_t" context.  Please add SELinux support.

    This is for the Deploy Server. However this could also apply to the Deploy Agent as well, I currently don't have an agent setup to check. This request really comes from the CIS benchmark for RHEL 8, where item states, Ensure no unconfined services exist. Then running the ps -efZ | grep DeployServer command supplies the output.

    system_u:system_r:unconfined_service_t:s0 ucd 931421 1 0 Apr30 ? 00:12:57 /usr/lib/jvm/jre-17/bin/java -Xmx2048m -XX:-OmitStackTraceInFastThrow -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError -Dcatalina.base=/opt/ucd/server/opt/tomcat -Dcatalina.home=/opt/ucd/server/opt/tomcat -Djava.awt.headless=true -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Djava.library.path=/opt/ucd/server/lib/rcl/linux/x386_64 -jar /opt/ucd/server/bin/launcher.jar /opt/ucd/server/bin/classpath.conf com.urbancode.ds.UDeployServer


    Then the benchmark just wants a policy assigned to (or created for) the unconfined process.

    For reference here is the output of the sestatus command:

    SELinux status: enabled

    SELinuxfs mount: /sys/fs/selinux

    SELinux root directory: /etc/selinux

    Loaded policy name: targeted

    Current mode: enforcing

    Mode from config file: enforcing

    Policy MLS status: enabled

    Policy deny_unknown status: allowed

    Memory protection checking: actual (secure)

    Max kernel policy version: 33

    Could you please clarify if this is for the Deploy Server, Agent, Relay or a Deploy Plugin? Any additional information you can share about what features of SELinux you would like to use would be helpful as well. Thank you for submitting this idea.
