Method Detail
loginAgentUser
static loginAgentUser(login : String, password : String) : Status
Logs in an agent user (which for example is authorized to login on-behalf of a customer for instance to place an order). The login is only allowed during a secure protocol request (https) and only in the storefront context. The user must have the permission 'Login_Agent'. When the login is successful, a new session will be created. Any objects that need to be preserved in the session need to bet set on the session afterwards. A Status object is returned which signals whether the login was successful or not. In case of a login failure the status object contains the reason for this. See AgentUserStatusCodes for more information.
Parameters:
login - the login name for the agent user.
password - the password for the agent user.
