@sofo506 Nice question,

Here are some pointers to help you,

  • The individual commands that you write in `scripts` array executed independently.
  • This means,  even if you switch user in one command (script) rest will execute in same old shell as previous switch won't have any effect on next command
  • To get rid of this situation you can merge two step, eg,
    • - su - taiko -C "touch me" && whoami && ... && ...
  • Or another way is, writing steps in using this syntax
  • - su -s /bin/bash -c "whoami" taiko

Hope this helps.
