Jenkins shell script add Unix user to group

I am running two consecutive shell scripts in a Jenkinsfile:

stage('running scripts') {
    sh "sudo"
    sh "groups && whoami"

  • How do we set the the RAM and disk space for a docker container?
  • Docker container migration
  • Unable to remove tag of a docker image due to 'no such image' error
  • Error starting docker postgres on travis-
  • groupadd docker
    usermod -aG docker ubuntu
    groups ubuntu

    Console output is:

    ubuntu : ubuntu adm dialout cdrom floppy sudo audio dip video plugdev netdev lxd docker

    But second shell script (i.e: sh "groups && whoami") shows that ubuntu user is NOT in docker group:

    + groups
    ubuntu adm dialout cdrom floppy sudo audio dip video plugdev netdev lxd
    + whoami

    What am I doing wrong ?

    Group permissions apply on login, and jenkins doesn’t rerun the login between steps of the pipeline. I’d recommend adding the group to your build slave (or docker image for your build slave).

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
