We have a bamboo agent installed on a Windows server and is running as a service. On the service it's setup to log on using one of our domain service accounts i.e. svc_bamboo_agent. The problem I have is that when I run a simple bamboo Script task on the agent 'echo %username%' it's displaying as 'SYSTEM' instead of the expected 'svc_bamboo_agent'. Why is this? How do I change it so the script is run under the service account 'svc_bamboo_agent?
It seems like this is a known issue on Windows.
The good news is that the process should still be running as svc_bamboo_agent - just try running whoami in your script task - you should find that that returns svc_bamboo_agent, and it's really just the %USERNAME% variable that's incorrectly set by Windows.
If you depend on that variable, you can set it to the actual username as part of your script task.
