Impersonate admins as another user

Hi,

 

I have a requirement where the admin should be able to login as another user in order to troubleshoot issues that arise.

 

Is this possible in power apps or any workarounds to achieve this.

 

Thanks.

Hi @Sharon091 ,

If we are talking about Model-driven app you can try my workaround (see here).

Hi @Sharon091 ,

 

I'm afraid there is no way to achieve your need, but there is already an idea suggested in Idea Forum:

Allow Admins to login as Users - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

 

If you like it, you could vote for it, and also you could supplement any scenario in comments.

 

Hope this helps.

Thank you OOlashyn for sharing.

Can this create some security concern? Is there a way we can limit this to only certain power apps.

 

@Sharon091 the method I propose is basically a hack because we are exploiting the way how UCI identify users. You cannot limit this and it needed to be used with conscious.
