I’ve three build-agent machines. Two MacMinis and a Linux box. On the two MacMini’s the buildkite agent is running as the human that set it up. On the Linux box it’s running as user buildkite-agent. I’d like to change that to the human (me; ‘paul’) who setup the box. How do I do that?
What version of Linux? Is it running systemd? You will most likely need to create a custom systemd service file (if you haven’t already) and set the user there.
For debian based systems it would be
cp /lib/systemd/system/buildkite-agent.service /etc/systemd/system/buildkite-agent.service and then update the
User=buildkite-agent line in
/etc/systemd/system/buildkite-agent.service. For redhat based I think it’s
/usr/lib/systemd/system/buildkite-agent.service you need to copy.
Kernel 5.2.0-15-generic : UBuntu 19.10, 64bit.
/etc/systemd/system/buildkite-agent.service already has line
User=buildkite-agent - what are you saying I should update it to? Doh, to to the human account I’m talking about in the OP.
Yep did you get it to work?
