Can be possible that Bamboo agent run using of Administrator User instead of Bamboo User?

Bamboo's agents run as user 'bamboo'. If so, I would like to be able to change this to an existing user we have created to perform just such tasks. Is this possible?

Hi @SaiCharan,

I haven't found a way to do this, but since most of what we need to do on our remote agents is Windows Powershell tasks, wqe have worked around this by having the script task change the user that is running the Powershell instance before we start executing the commands.

If you find a way to accomplish what you are asking please share it here.

If not I hope what I've suggested might help you work around the problem.



Hi James


I need to bamboo to be run on ROOT user, not as bamboo user.
