The "Set User Authentication" option is not available in WebPD when you remote debug into a PS.

Set User Authentication option is missing when process is run/debugged from remote process server. This option is used to run/debug human task with another test user id.


Please refer PMR - TS006594335 for more details. It has videos & everything needed to implement this feature. It's very important feature, we had same functionality in Desktop PD. But, it has been removed from WebPD.

    Yes, I second that. Set User Authentication is very important feature to run/debug the human task with another user in WebPD. Currently this option is visible only in workflow center. In remote workflow server this option is missing. In our application we have different teams with certain privileges which perform their designated tasks. So to triage/debug the workflow in remote process servers we have to login with the particular team's user. As the Set User Authentication option is missing in remote process server, it becomes difficult to troubleshoot/debug the workflow. In desktop PD we never faced such issue , we could login to any human task with task's assigned team's test users regardless of desktop PD's login user ID.
