Script runs locally, but only once sometimes as policy

I have the script below which runs fine locally but when used as a reoccurring policy only runs once, sometimes or not at all. Any ideas welcome....?

 

#!/usr/bin/env zsh

currentUser=$(/usr/bin/python -c 'from SystemConfiguration import SCDynamicStoreCopyConsoleUser; import sys; username = (SCDynamicStoreCopyConsoleUser(None, None, None) or [None])[0]; username = [username,""][username in [u"loginwindow", None, u""]]; sys.stdout.write(username + "\n");')

echo $currentUser

function default_browser () {
    sudo -u $currentUser osascript <<-AS
    use framework "AppKit"
    use AppleScript version "2.4"
    use scripting additions

    property NSWorkspace : a reference to current application's NSWorkspace
    property NSURL : a reference to current application's NSURL

    set wurl to NSURL's URLWithString:"https://www.apple.com"
    set thisBrowser to (NSWorkspace's sharedWorkspace)'s ¬
                        URLForApplicationToOpenURL:wurl
    set appname to (thisBrowser's absoluteString)'s lastPathComponent()'s ¬
                    stringByDeletingPathExtension() as text
    return appname as text
AS
    return
}

currentBrowser=$(sudo -u $currentUser printf '%s\n' $(default_browser))
forcedBrowser="Microsoft%20Edge"

echo $currentBrowser

if [ "$currentBrowser" = "$forcedBrowser" ]; then

echo "Yay"
exit 0

else

if [ -f "/usr/local/ArtsEd/defweb.py" ]; then

sudo -u $currentUser /usr/bin/python /usr/local/ArtsEd/defweb.py

else

/bin/mkdir -p /usr/local/ArtsEd
/usr/bin/curl https://artsed001.blob.core.windows.net/macos-config/defweb.py --output /usr/local/ArtsEd/defweb.py
sudo -u $currentUser /usr/bin/python /usr/local/ArtsEd/defweb.py

fi

exit 0

In the policy what did you set for the trigger and in the execution frequency?

Have you looked in the policy log to see what the status shows? If the policy on the mac shows pending, have you checked if there are any failed commands on that mac?
