Description

Customers with some of the [unsupported single sign-on solutions|http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DEV/Single+Sign-on+Integration+with+JIRA+and+Confluence] can't easily upgrade to Confluence 3.3 because WebSudo doesn't handle external SSO solutions.

See this example: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Configuring+Secure+Administrator+Sessions?focusedCommentId=221446417#comment-221446417

Users can't get into the admin console to disable web sudo

The workaround for this is to start [Confluence in Development Mode|http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFDEV/Enabling+Developer+Mode], disable web sudo, then restart confluence in a normal mode.
