Swap User Usage

How does it work

From the users listed when running the following command:

dscacheutil -q user | grep -A3 -B2 -e 5'[0-9][0-2']

the script excludes the current user and takes the first user from the ones remaining.

Correct shell command

Dear Rodrigo,

I am new to this forum. Where can I download your workflow to swap users?

Thank you!


Hi Rutger,

Thanks for your interest. You can download the workflow from here. It's the Github's releases page from the workflow's repo.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

Best regards,
