Login As a User for Admin User Types
This option allows Admin users to login into the application on behalf of any foreign user account that they have access to on the administration page. There is a number of restrictions that come along with that feature.
1. User must be authenticated
2. User must possess a role of ADMIN
3. User can use the feature only by providing an active customer account
4. User can NOT use the feature on behalf of a foreign account (in a chain)
The 'Login as this user' icon is supposed to be visible on the right-hand action bar of the user list.
As soon as authentication is passed the informational banner is attached to the top of the page including basic information about the user account selected.
At any point in time, you can release the user account and get back the original one by clicking on the 'Release user' button, in such a way you will be redirected back to the user administration page.
