Force Switch User (FSU) Module - Making User Switching As Convenient As Possible
As a Drupal developer, you may have worked on a website where you must change user/role frequently.
Drupal default login does allows you to do that, but it wastes time and is a bother when you have to log in/log out so many times.
That's why we create Force Switch User. You can switch to another user with just one click in real time without touching Drupal log in panel.
What's more is there are Master and Anonymous roles, which makes this module unique.
This is why we think the Force Switch User will not only benefit developers but will also be valuable for websites that allow users to switch to other roles immediately like Online Learning, E-commerce, etc.
Also, we write and optimize the code to force log in/log out user session, which doesn't cause any errors and bugs like we had from using the other module. The action and dashboard is made as easy and convenient as possible for use.
Learn more details below.
How it works
After being installed and enabled, there will be a small moving panel on your website, where you can enter the log-in credential immediately.
FSU panel closed
FSU panel open
You can enter the user account that you have without using Drupal default login pages/places.
A recent user log within the panel exists so that you can click and switch to the user account instantly
There is a FSU Master tab where you can enter the master password and have the admin (highest role), which you can use to create FSU account, set the role, edit or change any anonymous FSU users.
There is another force switch user module, but it only allows 1 type of user (admin). We allow Master and Anonymous Roles.
Who is this module for?
- Drupal Developers
- Webmasters with lots of user roles
- Online courses, E-commerce, or any sites that allow users to switch the user/role in real time.
Types of User Roles
This is the highest level of users who can set the rules and rights for anonymous users.
There is a master password, which you can use to log in immediately.
Once enabled, any anonymous user can enter the FSU account and log in. They can search and choose the existing users and switch to another use in no time.
Force Switch User Settings
To make it simple and convenient, there are only 4 setting tabs.
If you want to get the Force switch user to work, this box must be ticked
Flush all caches when switching to new user
This will allow you to clear/flush all the previous caches before changing to the different users
Enable brute force protection
Once ticked, any anonymous users only have 5 times to try with the log-in.
The most important password for the highest-level user role (admin)
There are up to 8 colors for you to choose from the module dashboard
7 postions have been carefully chosen and styled so that you can select.
Here, you set the who will see and use the FSU module. User roles include anonymous user, authenticated user, administrator
2. Create FSU Account
Create FSU Account
This tab helps you create as many FSU username account as you can with status as active or inactive, and grants them the certain user roles (authenticated user, administrator)
3. FSU accounts

Inside this, you'll see the most recent status and date of the FSU usernames
