    need a role to sudo or something like that


      I have an application user, "user_a", which is a role in my Solaris 11.1 OS.  The new request is that this user need to sftp/rsync some files from other servers. 


      so I thought that's OK, let me just create a normal user and the transfer will be done through this user, "user_b".  When I tested, I realized that when user_a tries to run the command through user_b, it always prompts for password.


      is there a way for a role to run such commands?  interactively commands, like sftp or rsync.  I could use a batch mode have "user_b" to transfer the files periodically, but that would be my last resort.
