Running a process with restrcited access

Hi Experts,

I have an executable(say example) file that I want to run with restricted access in CentOS linux.
I logged into the system using root account.  How can launch this example app with restricted access. ( Assuming I add a user, ambuli,  with limited access.
Thanks,

Are you trying to say that, you are logged in as root user and trying to execute a command.
But, you don't want the effective user of this command to be user - instead you want it to execute with effective user ambuli?

If that is right, then you can use su as woolmilkporc has pointed out.

But, I feel, sudo is better suited to this than su and also more powerful.
You can use sudo like this:
sudo -u ambuli example
