Fast Backend User Switch (TYPO3 Extension
The beuser_fastswitch extension provides a very easy backend user switch for TYPO3 CMS administrator users.
With just two mouse clicks you can
- Switch to another backend user
- Edit another backend user
- Show record info of another backend user
Installation using Composer
The recommended way to install the extension is by using Composer. In your Composer based TYPO3 project root, just do
composer require josefglatz/beuser-fastswitch
Installation as extension from TYPO3 Extension Repository (TER)
Download and install the extension with the TYPO3 CMS extension manager module or directly via typo3.org.
Disable toolbar item for specific backend admin user/-group via UserTSConfig
option.backendToolbarItem.beUserFastwitch.disabled = 1
The following requested features are already planned/already in the implementation phase
The ongoing development is done within the develop branch!
Phase 1) Limitation of available users via global extension configuration
- Show also backend users with administrator privileges (I don't see a usecase for that actually)
- Allowed username pattern
- Allowed user email pattern
- Allowed user group uid's
- Allowed user group name pattern
Phase 2) Global extension configuration can be overwritten by UserTSConfig
Any of the global extension configuration can be overruled by specific UserTSConfig.
Phase 3) Ajax based autocomplete user search box (for big TYPO3 instances)
Requested by the community
In TYPO3 instances with for example 700+ backend users it's not possible to use the extension anymore. An intuitive search box allows you to find the user by username or real name. After opening the module, the last used users you've switched to (maybe a TYPO3 v9 only feature) are listed below the search box.
