For agents running on UNIX/Linux platforms, when you configure a process step you can provide the agents with the user impersonation capability.
You can select ssh, sudo, or su options.
When a process step runs that has user impersonation configured, the ssh, sudo, or su command runs the step as the impersonated user.
Process steps can be considered individual shells; the ssh, sudo, or su command enables a user to start a shell as another user.
To configure impersonation:
The username to authenticate as during impersonation.
The password to use during impersonation.
*nix Impersonation Type
Select ssh, sudo, or su.
If you select ssh, SSH authentication will be used to perform impersonation. You must install, configure, and start the SSH daemon on your agent machines if you want to use this option.
If you select su, it can be used only on agents running under the root account.
If you select sudo, before it can be used, you must provide impersonation privileges as follows:
See the UNIX/Linux documentation for more information on configuring ssh, sudo, and su.
