      Description

      In previous releases the mender-connect configuration had "pi" as the user when following onboarding on Raspberry Pi.

      However, now (I think in 3.1 and later) "root" is used instead. This is a less commonly used user, at least in Raspberry Pi (less familiar) and could cause some security concerns too. Here is the full mender-connenct.conf after onboarding:

      {
        "User": "root",
        "ShellCommand": "/bin/bash"
      }
      

      Maybe this was an explicit decision? If so just let me know.

      Acceptance criteria

      • When following onboarding with Raspberry Pi, the "pi" user is used for mender-connect
