Impersonate user is SSO enabled portal

I am trying to create a portal/website with SSO authentication. In this portal, I want to provide impersonate user option for certain users. Is there any OOTB servlet/service available in AEM which can be directly used or extended. Also, what is the recommended approach to achieve this feature.

I would also like to provide an impersonate user option for some of our testing team in AEM 6.4 Assets with SSO authentication enabled.   I am following this discussion. Thank you.

ALindley: I was able to make it work on SSO enabled portal. There are 2 things that needs to be done in order to achieve this:

1. Set sling:sudo cookie with the user name that you want to impersonate as.

2. On Server side, using user admin or any service user that has priviledge on /home/users, set the rep:impersonator property as current user on the user that you are trying to impersonate as.
