Docker Hardening

I followed this docker hardening documentation to harden the docker containerzied environment for Cortex XSOAR solutin. 


I added the first server configuration key as this ( = true), and reset docker containers then issue this command (!py script="import os;print(os.getuid())") to validate if docker currently run under non root user, and it returns 999 which is good.


But after i added the second configuration key mentioned in the document as this (,demisto/python:), and repeat the same process to confirm user, it returned (0) this time. 


So i'm just wondering if this is normal of have i made a mistake while adding the second key.

I think the second configuration is for exceptions where the container doesn't support non root users. You basically set all python 3 docker images to run as root
