Salvete!

In a business application consisting of several portlets I would like to add functionality that will allow selected users (managers) to work on behalf of their subordinates.

How to do switching user identities without logging with password, so that managers could watch his subordinates data exactly as they (subordinates) see after logging.
I do not want to rebuilding the application.

I have set authentication to work with CAS.
Liferay 6.1.1

I will be grateful for suggestions.

Check on "impersonate user" functionality.
