Can we change the file ownership of Cribl Linux directory

We installed the Cribl on our Linux server, and by default, it is user=cribl group=cribl.
Our organization requires us to us a Service account to run configuration inside it.

Question :
Can we change the user and group ownership of the Linux directory of Cribl?
And would it affect anything ?
From user=cribl group=cribl.
To user=svcacc_cribl group=svcacc_cribl

    Yep. I'd recommend stopping Cribl first. Then change ownership, and vitally change the user the service runs as in the systemd config. Reload systemd and restart Cribl. Bob's your uncle.

    I have a few environments I installed as root, but I want to run as cribl, and when I upgrade need to use:

    chown -R ${CRIBL_HOME} cribl:cribl
