Core.initializeSession() failing.

0
I”m trying to create a java action to impersonate another user without needing to know their password (for support purposes).  I was playing around with this idea, which other posts suggested did work once, but perhaps things changed.  This is part of the the code:   @java.lang.Override public java.lang.Boolean executeAction() throws Exception { // BEGIN USER CODE IUser user = Core.getUser(getContext(), username); var rResponse = this.context().getRuntimeResponse(); var response = rResponse.isPresent() ? rResponse.get() : null; //unknown user? if (user == null) { return false; } else { //known user // UUID currentSessionId = this.getContext().getSession().getId(); ISession session = Core.initializeSession(user, null/*1currentSessionId.toString()*/); It works fine until that last line, then throws this: com.mendix.modules.microflowengine.MicroflowException: com.mendix.systemwideinterfaces.MendixRuntimeException: com.mendix.core.objectmanagement.SecurityRuntimeException: Write access denied for member 'FailedLogins' of object 'Administration.Account' at Configurations.ImpersonateAccount (JavaAction :

“com.mendix.basis.session.User.loginSuccessful(User.java:310)” was called, the login worked, and perhaps the system is trying to reset the count to 0, but even logged in as an Administrator role while clicking the button, this fails.  I know the issue is stated clearly: “Write access denied for member 'FailedLogins' of object 'Administration.Account'”  However, I have no way to change who has write access to “System.User/FailedLogins”. Any ideas why that write access is failing when being run as the Admin role?   I was also going by this post (among others): https://forum.mendix.com/link/questions/86780

Ok, turns out I cannot use the CURRENT context to query for the user object, and it has to be the context from here: “IContext systemContext = Core.createSystemContext();” – as clearly shown on the other post. :P ;)  I’m assuming that means whoever queries the object, is the security context under which associated user functions will operated under.
