ssh command hangs with sudo user executing the command.

Hello , 


following is my simple deployment step in pipelines. i have also disabled password prompt for this command in visudo file.


- pipe: atlassian/ssh-run:0.1.4


      SSH_USER: 'appuser'


      MODE: 'command'

     DEBUG: 'true'

     COMMAND: 'sudo pm2 restart app.js'

this hangs at the following line in the console.

ssh -A -tt -i /root/.ssh/pipelines_id -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -p 22 appuser@<ip-address> sudo pm2 restart app.js 


looks like something going with ==> "sudo" .

Hi @Gangadhar Mamillapalli . I don't thinks running a command with sudo should affect the execution of the pipe. I would suggest checking if there are issues with the pm2, maybe there are to many processes running or something like that. Can you try to login you your server and run the same command manually?

thanks for reply. 

am able to that command successfully by manually logging into the server.

in fact ., we have one more server with root user and the same script runs good ( without that sudo before that command) .



Ok, does your your user requires a sudo password to run sudo commands? If so, this might be the reason the pipe hangs, basically waiting for password input. 

thanks for the reply,

as i mentioned in my first message that i have disable password prompt for running this command ==> pm2 restart app.js in visudo file.  i have verified this manually also.

looks like some other issue.
