To add to the list, I don't know if there's a feature for this...

But, is there a way to do impersonation of users?  Essentially, one 
user/agent logs in and then becomes a different user without requiring 
the user password.  We're seeing this for REST based server-to-server 
communication calls.  I am extrapolating that I could do some sort of 
silentAuthentication like indicated in the doc on the 
TicketMonster-PicketLink example, but that piece of the code isn't 
visible on the product documentation page.
