Unable to create parent directory /mnt/var/www/html/content

We're using AEM cloud and running into the following dispatcher error: Unable to create parent directory /mnt/var/www/html/content.  Since its on cloud I'm not sure how to resolve since we don't have access to adjust any permissions.

Can you share a bit more context? Does the deployment break because of this?

The deployment doesn't break.  We turned up the logging in the staging environment and saw this

this means that the unix user used by the Apache httpd cannot create files/directories below there. Not really specific to AEM or the dispatcher. Adjust the permissions below /mnt/var/www/html so that the user used by httpd (in many distributions it is called "httpd") can write there.

This makes sense for an on prem dispatcher.  Not sure how I can adjust permissions on cloud.
