Hi Alec

When a journal manager wants to "Log In As" a user which has some roles in other journals the manager does not manage, following message will be displayed.
Code: Select all
Sorry, you do not have administrative rights over this user. This may be because:

    * The user is a site administrator
    * The user is active in journals you do not manage

This task must be performed by a site administrator.

I wonder wether there is any work around for this issue. I know this is for confidentiality issues but sometimes it may be neccessary to use it. I appreciate your help solving this problem.

Regards,
Mahmoud

Hi Mahmoud,

The Site Administrator can always log in as other users. You may either use that account, or if you like, you can grant Site Administrator rights to your own account. To do that, you'll need to manually insert an entry in the "roles" table with user_id corresponding to your account, journal_id 0, and role_id 1.
