[openstack-dev] [tempest][infra][congress] subprocess launched in tempest test lacks file permission

A tempest test [1] launches additional instances of Congress using
subprocess.popen and tests the coordination between them and the original
instance launched by devstack. The problem is, the new instances are
launched from the tempest test user rather than the user of the original
congress instance devstack created. As a result, the new instances fail
for being unable to access the encryption keys created by the original
congress instance (600 permission).[2]

Any suggestions for how to workaround this problem? Is it possible to
somehow configure the gate job to run tempest tests as SU or as the
stackuser that launches the original congress instance? Thanks so much!
