How can I give permission for another non-priv user on the same server to get Read/Write access /home/parity/.local/share/io.parity.ethereum/json.ipc and have that access available on reboot?

The .toml file does not have anything to specify the file permissions.

Setting the correct permissions isn't something parity handles, but setting permissions after the socket is created (using chmod/chown) shouldn't cause any problems.

If you want to persist the permissions over reboots, you should either run parity through a script that changes the permissions after launch, or more simply, set the permissions on the directory that the socket will exist in instead of the socket itself.

  • @Joshup_Mir your answer looks correct but it is not the correct way for Parity to handle this. I added a comment to the GitHub thread you posted.
