I need to start my java application with a script,
but User Data are not working: if I start the application manually, it works.
My EC2 instance has Ubuntu
Here’s the snippet of the User Data I’m using:
#!/bin/bash cd /home/ubuntu sudo su java -jar HelpDesk-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar
User Data script are executed only on the very first boot: it seems you expect that the script will be executed at every reboot.
