The Kuali Core users service provides a mechanism for testers to login as other users while working through business processes in Kuali applications. This is important when testing the full lifecycle of certain documents such as Protocols or COI disclosures. This feature must be turned on individually in each instance. If you need to use Core Impersonation submit a zendesk ticket and indicate in which environments you would like this feature activated. Only core users with the role of Admin will be able to complete the following steps.
Accessing the Core Users Screen
Navigate to https://[Your kuali Environment domain]/users
If you are using the Research Dashboard you can get to users by clicking on the user details icon in the sidebar and then pressing the < Back to User List link at the top of the page.
Search for the user you want to impersonate and click on their name.
Press the Impersonate button on the user details screen that displays.
Note: If you do not see an Impersonate button search for your user account and confirm that your Role is Admin. If you are an Admin and do not have an Impersonate button submit a zendesk ticket or work with your Functional Consultant to turn Impersonation on in your environment.
After you press the Impersonate button you will be taken to the Core Apps screen. From here you can go to the URL for the Kuali Application you are testing in and you will be logged in as the user you are impersonating.
