Description Ian Springer 2012-04-26 10:52:43 EDT
This allows users to specify a prefix for a start script execution initiated by the Start or Restart operation. The most common use case is needing to run AS7 as a different user than the RHQ Agent, in which case the prefix would be e.g. "sudo -u jboss" to run AS7 as the jboss user.

This should not take too long to implement, as we already have generic support for prefixes in ProcessExecutionUtility.createProcessExecution() in the plugin-api module.
Comment 1 Ian Springer 2012-04-26 10:55:34 EDT
Note, we support this in the as4 and as5 plugins, so we'll need it for feature parity in the as7 plugin.
Comment 2 Charles Crouch 2012-04-26 10:59:49 EDT
We should do this for RHQ4.4
Comment 3 Ian Springer 2012-04-28 17:17:16 EDT
Done in master:


Note, if an AS7 instance is running as a different user and/or group than the Agent, we detect this in autodiscovery and prepopulate the 'startScriptPrefix' prop with the appropriate sudo command line.

Verified on Version: 3.1.0.CR1 Build Number: 4bc4270:1b85993

Started EAP6 instance with a different user than the agent (sudo -u skondkar). The instance is detected in autodiscovery and the 'Start Script Prefix' property in 'Inventory->Connection Settings' prepopulated with the value  '/usr/bin/nohup /usr/bin/sudo -u skondkar -g skondkar'.

Please refer the attached screenshot.

Did you also then try running the Start and Restart operations and verify that they worked and that the AS7 instance was running as skondkar:skondkar ?
Comment 7 Sunil Kondkar 2012-06-05 09:15:14 EDT
Hi Ian,

I Started agent with user 'testuser' and EAP6 instance with user 'skondkar'.

The operations start and restart worked and AS7 instance is running as skondkar:skondkar when I inserted below line in /etc/sudoers file:

testuser ALL=(skondkar:skondkar)      NOPASSWD: /store/EAP/EAP6/EAP6-ER8/jboss-eap-6.0/bin/standalone.sh
