Login as bamboo user on EC2 Elastic Bamboo Instance

You can ssh into an ec2 elastic instance by using the elasticbamboo.pk key that Bamboo setup. However, you login as the ec2-user not the bamboo user that the agent use to run the build.

The build files are located in the /home/bamboo user directory and the ec2-user does not have permission to it.

How do you login/su to the bamboo user so you can inspect the build files, logs, etc. for troubleshooting purpose?
