Change user from Root to username

Hello All, 


Test Description - 
Automate execution of "tcpdump command to capture logs" through "Execute external command". 
User for that execution is a non root user. 


Problem statement - 
In Test step, logging on the server is as a root user and creating the dumps . But we need to switch the user from root to specific user before tcmpdump command execution. 


Solution tried so far - 
We tried with
"su - username 
 tcpdump xyz.log" (it shows the owner as root)


Can anyone suggest how to change the user in command line or any shell script for the same?
