Active Directory sync, Windows Login option: how to login as a different user?

Must-share information (formatted with Markdown):

  • which versions are you using (SonarQube, Scanner, Plugin, and any relevant extension): Enterprise Edition Version 9.9 (build 65466)
  • how is SonarQube deployed: zip

When signing into SonarQube, I select “Windows Login” and it automatically signs me in using the currently logged in user in Windows. I want to sign into a different AD user but it doesn’t give me an option under “Windows Login” and the other login option seems to only be local accounts. Is there a way to login as another user without signing into that user in Windows before accessing SonarQube?

Hey there.

If your SSO is set-up in a way that you can’t impersonate a user before the login process… you’ll have to sign into that user in Windows.

What is your use-case for signing in as a different, windows-authenticated user?
