In order to use the back door log in to impersonate users in a non-prod environment, take the following steps:
- Set parameter SHOW_BACK_DOOR_LOGIN_IND = Y
- Assign permission Backdoor Restriction to the role authorized to impersonate other users
NOTE: When the parameter is set to N, only users with the Backdoor Restriction can backdoor as other people. The field still displays, but if you don't have permission, you can't impersonate other users.
