This gem adds a function that allows you to switch the user capistrano uses when running ssh commands at runtime.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install capistrano-switchuser
Add the following line to your deploy.rb file:
You can then call the switchuser function to switch the user for all subsequent commands:
run('whoami') # will output original value of user e.g. 'deployer' switchuser(:ubuntu) run('whoami') # will output 'ubuntu'
You can also switch the user for a subset of commands by passing a block:
switchuser(:ubuntu) do run('whoami') # will output 'ubuntu' end run('whoami') # will output original value of user e.g. 'deployer'
You must have ssh privileges for any user you set!
