I am trying to set up the "login as another user" feature but am not able to find any options for the test user. I understand I may have to create these, but how do I go about doing that? I have tried to create an employee but still not coming up in the "test user" field as an option.

Hi fernannd,

You were not able to fetch any results since the query is built such that only with User ID KEYTEST* will fetch in the results however, you can fetch the results by modifying the query.refer below screenshot.

Hi Praveen,

Thanks for that, I was able to pull the names with your explanation above. HOWEVER, I was not able to save. It told me that I was only able to us a target with the KEYTEST user prefix. See attachment.

So, I created a new Business User called "KEYTEST_FERNANDA" and was able to login as another user. So, FYI- you must have a user with the prefix KEYTEST in order to be able to do this

Thanks Prasanth. If I am not an administrator, how do I go about setting an administrator user for myself? Is this the same as a Service Agent?

As an administrator for Testing purposes you can use your user and then proceed further. There is no such specific thing called as a Test user

Once the Business User is created , Go to Administrator --> General Settings --> Login as Another user and enter your user ID you in Test User Technical ID and the target ID (for whom you want to test ) in Business User Technical ID.

I believe rest all information is already visible and is self Explanatory on the UI screen there itself.
