Extraudarnary secruity for administrators

if you have joined administrators, you can see the thoughts in that group and thereby it looks like you have the administrator powers.   However some of those powers require an extra level of security and thereby an extra sign-in.   The problem is that when those credentials expire,  the powers disappear … appearing as if they never existed.  Although i have realized this for a long time, i always stumble on it when i need to use one of these unusual powers.    This is clumsy.  It will cause a customer support isssue whenever it happens.  It  makes it hard for a new domain wizzards to learn what they can do.

I suggest always showing the possibility of action in the though  … but when they are clicked upon, if credentials have expired, have a window pop up to obtain them. 

for example:  changing passwords for groups.

It is simply that some of that stuff is still tied to the old group way and some to the new rights way. Sometime I need to go over all the old plugins and upgrade them.

Not too surprised about that. But what with unified identities and rights we now have the ability to do what you originally wanted and make it a feature of the groups table anyway.

In fact, I can now use the graph API to make the plugin for that. ?
