I know I can create a "screen" process, that allows me to then later

If I can figure out how to do all of this initially for a test, I can of
roll out the rest of my tests...
Hope this makes sense.

Do you need to interact with this automated process? If not, running it as
a oneshot service unit might be a better fit. I'm curious what the thing
does, and what led you to screen as a way of doing it.
