Subject: Re: [Freeipa-users] FreeIPA WebUI Logout logs back in

HI Simo, Dmitiri, Rob and co.

Simos "log in with a different user" suggestion is pretty much what I was 
intending. I want to be able to log out of the web ui, then log back in with a 
different user. e.g. to allow a newly added user to change their password to 
something secret.

On this particular workstation I have no kerberos ticket (double checking with 
klist at the terminal confirms this). I have not saved the password in Firefox 
(checking in the settings confirms this).

I often have ssh sessons open via terminal to the FreeIPA Server, and even 
Apache Directory Studio open to browse the LDAP structure and content. I don't 
see how that can play a role, but I mention it for completeness.
Seems that would be a useful option for me too. I normally login as myself but 
there are times when someone comes by and wants to change their password and 
it's easier if they do it on my system sometimes as the Kerberos auth prompt 
confuses them and I can coach them through. Also, I occasionally need to login 
as the primary 'admin' user as some of the options (ahem - Sudo rules on 
version 3.0.0) are not accessible regardless of the permissions given.
