2087492 - Can I Change the Language while Proxied as someone else? - BizX Platform

Symptom

  • Administrators or users with the permission to proxy may notice that Options > Change Language is not available while proxied as someone else.

Environment

  • BizX Platform

Resolution

  • It is the intended design, and for ease of use, that when proxying as another user, the proxy (logged in user) retains his or her own language. For example, if Admin User uses English and wishes to proxy as User B who uses Japanese, Admin User would still need to see the menu options, system labels, etc., in English in order to do what needs to be done. If Admin User is troubleshooting language issues or needs to check the pages in the user’s locale, he would first need to Change Language on his own account, before proxying as the user.
