In the [local] and [plugin] sections the new option include has been introduced. With this option you can configure additional local and plugin directories, which should get parsed. You can also configure that the scripts in the given directories should get executed as a different user.

Example configuration:

check_mk.ini
[plugins]
# The scripts in the following folder are executed as user \\ab
include \\ab = C:\users\ab\plugins
# The scripts in the following folder are executed without any
# changes to the user permission
include - = C:\scripts\plugins

Important: Keep in mind that the agent needs the permission to run scripts as other user. Internally it uses the windows command runas /User: which prompts for a password if the windows agent has no permission to change to this user.
