By default, environments are run as unprivileged, preventing them from certain capabilities such as accessing the docker daemon.

The environment will have all of the proper environment variables set to interact directly with the docker daemon running in the sidecar as long as the environment has the docker client installed.
While this feature can offer a great deal of convenience to a user's workflow, it is also at risk of being exploited by a malicious user and should be enabled with caution.
Note that changing this setting does not affect running environments. In order for the new setting to take effect, all running environments should be rebuilt.
To enable this feature, select "Enable Privileged Environments" in the admin console.
