If a user is setup as System Administrator profile, the user can login as other user. However, is there any option that I can enable this function for other profile except System Administrator because I don't want to give them other System Administrator permission access?

In the past as I remember in summer 12, there's an option called "managing user permission" which allow me to disable or enable the profile to login as other user. But I don't see this anymore.

You're looking for Delegated Administration, which lets you define whom can perform various administrative tasks, such as logging in as other users, configure custom objects, and assign user profiles. It's found in Setup > Security Controls > Delegated Administration.

  • Just about to post a similar response, but ya beat me to it :). As an additional note, you can allow admins to login as any sf user without needing to request permission. (needs to be turned on by SF first): help.salesforce.com/… Jun 20, 2014 at 15:05
  • Ricky, your comment is if the user is setup as System Administrator then they will have the ability of login as other user. But I want the non-System Administrator profile user to login as other user because I don't want to give this profile user full system administrator access. I'm trying the Delegated Administration which was commented by sfdcfox.
