I set up a discourse server for a client and let them create test accounts, which I knew will ultimately become obsolete once the SSO was in place. I set everything up, customised my theme and wrote category descriptions for everything using my admin account A.
Once I had DiscourseConnect setup (as the only sign-up option) I signed in with my admin account from the other system and granted that account B admin rights. From here on I would do anything under account B, as I couldn’t log in as A anymore.
Then I happend upon the “impersonate” button and got curious. Seemed like I didn’t have to delete account A, if I could just impersonate them to edit category descriptions, FAQs etc. So I used B to impersonate A and did a bunch of edits to test and everything was great.
Until I got curious if I could impersonate the forum’s bot account as well. So, while still impersonating A (who happened to be an admin) I decided to impersonate C. It worked, great stuff, so diligently I logged out and went about my day.
Now, when logged in as B I can no longer impersonate A or C (other users are fine). The spot where the button should appear just reads “Admins and moderators can’t be deleted”.
The logs say that “B impersonated A” and “A impersonated C”.
I wasn’t sure whether this warrants a bug report - as I currently have no way of reproducing my steps - or if there was an easy way to fix this?
Thanks in advance,
