Passwordless virtualmin login

Doing support for clients. Want to login to sort things out. Don’t want to require users to provide us a password. I don’t wish us to change their password. We have root access on the server.

cpanel has this:

From root it creates a temporary login session. From there we’d be able to copy paste the url into a browser. Perform support. And leave our client to it.

That’s a good idea.

I’ll ask @JamieCameron if we can implement something like that. Seems like it’d be reasonable to generate a one-time login on the CLI using the webmin command and make it into a link that creates a session. Needs a little care to make it safe/secure, but many cloud services do something similar.

This is a good idea. Meanwhile, are you aware that you can already Switch To Server’s Admin from root account?

I had no idea that was there. How have I missed that all along? LOL!

Sure, I could create something like that.
