#9579 new enhancement

sudo-like behavior for users

API Changes:
Internal Changes:


provide admins a way to specify and allow normal users to escalate privileges to perform some set of tasks normally not allowed to them without having to change users. our use case calls for users to be able to perform a majority of tasks, and we would like to prevent them from accidentally blowing everything away. currently they have to switch accounts to do this, and its somewhat awkward.

this behavior would imitate the behavior of sudo to some degree.

management through groups (similar to wheel) would be great.

Tools exist that were developed specifically to solve this issue (sudo on Unix, runas on Windows), so this is not something we will add to Trac.

sorry missed one crucial detail - this feature is for the web interface, not command line
