Admin: Change to one user's view to see what they can see?


I am looking for the following admin feature: 

I would like to choose a user and then see exactly what they can see in JIRA. Eventually even can check, which rights they have. 

Something like facebook offers with the "View as..." functionality.

If you are on Cloud, there is an "impersonate user" feature in user management section.

If you are on Server, you'll need to install one of the add-ons that provides "su" functions.  (I know ScriptRunner does it, and there's at least one add-on for doing only "su" in the marketplace.  I have a feeling there are several that provide it though)

Thanks for the fast answer. Using Script Runner already but didn't find this feature right away. Perfect!
