Sometimes administrators need to temporarily 'log in as' a particular user, in order to debug some problem. There is the SU for Jira/Confluence plugin for this, and the Switch to a different user built-in script in the ScriptRunner plugin.
But if you're cheap or lazy, a JSP file (switchuser.jsp for Jira or switchuser.jsp for Confluence) in the right place will do the job fine, although the UI is not that flash:
Just drop it into the right directory:
curl -LOJ 'https://bitbucket.org/!api/2.0/snippets/redradish/9erqRX/8377bee3991a9272f2d2da9669f6ca7c9d6a9fda/files/switchuser.jsp'
chown root:confluence switchuser.jsp
curl -LOJ 'https://bitbucket.org/!api/2.0/snippets/redradish/Re98Xk/11bbaa7aec4a32c9e035cc939daeb97648e24820/files/switchuser.jsp'
chown root:jira switchuser.jsp
These JSPs work with Okta (unlike ScriptRunner - see SRPLAT-192), and will also pacify websudo initially, so you are not prompted for the user's password when doing certain admin operations.
