Let's say, I have the following bash script:
#!/bin/bash sudo command1 command2 sudo command3
I don't want to run
command2 as root, so I won't run the script itself with
sudo. Therefore, as soon as I execute the script,
sudo command1 asks for my password. Unfortunately,
command2 takes about 2 hours to complete. So the sudo credentials timestamp timed out and when the script reaches
sudo command3, I'm prompted for the password again.
I don't want to permanently disable the sudo credentials timestamp timeout altogether as described in https://superuser.com/a/149740 for example. I just want to disable the timeout temporarily, effectively keep the credentials for this one bash session until it ends.
