Use the Masquerade Module to Test Drupal Roles


If you have a large Drupal site, you may have a large number of roles and users.

  • How do you know if a role is set up correct?
  • How you know if a user has the correct permissions?

Yes, you can create fake accounts for each user role, but that becomes very cumbersome if you have more than a couple of roles.

Yes, you can ask the user for their password, or reset if for them, but that’s a painful process.

The solution is the Masquerade module which allows you to easily browse the site through the eyes of any user you choose:

Alternatively if you want to test a Drupal role that has no existing user you can use this module (which is based on Masquerade itself) [url=]…[/url]
