How to let a contact switch between organisations / login as - feature



our client is asking for a feature, in which their employees (admins) have a list of Organizations, which they can switch to (login as).

We have some ideas with setting 1:N relations on CustomerContact, getting the Organizations who the contact has acccess to, but we are unaware about difficulties or problems which may come with this solution.

  • Is there anyone who has done something similar, how did you solve it?
  • Should we use relationships or use Roles instead?

Impersona is not a builtin feature to Commerce. We have it in our backlog, but it is still a long way to get there

Whilst not yet a built-in feature, the Quicksilver B2B implementation on Github has this feature. 

Once installed, log in as admin and then go to the profile page. You'll see a link to organisations - click on the top-level one and then look at that organisation's users. Next to each user you can click an 'eye' icon that will let you impersonate that user.

Once impersonating, you can act on that user's behalf, and when finished click on the 'return to admin' link at the top of the page.

I hope that helps
