In FACT-1442 the regular expression used to validate the user identity from facter on windows was modified to be more broad. This was to expedite the CI pipelines passing due to Windows 10 being added. However the regex may be too broad and there value is never actually verified.

This ticket should;

  • Investigate whether it is possible to verify that the value returned from facter is actually true

Moving into current sprint and activating as PR is up for this issue due to facter testing issues discovered in packer/imaging acceptance testing.

This also noted in IMAGES-360

Maggie Dreyer are you able to take over review of this change - not urgent, but thought it worthwhile to put up the PR for the additional windows platforms under this ticket rather than IMAGES-360.
