password to temporarily bypass content filter

We have a sonicwall tz 105 and use the content filtering on it. We have it using the LDAP integration for rules. Is there a way I can type in a password into the browser to temporarily allow user access to unblocked content?

You mean you want to give the user a password s/he Will type and get access?

You basically want the ability to override the rules which you have set via groups in LDAP. Only admin to my knowledge can do such. Otherwise, what would the purpose be of setting up the rules and groups.

more just for an admin to be able to jump onto another user that is blocked, machine and type in  password real fast to get access. So far all i could figure out was to go to the login page for the Sonicwall and log in as admin there and content is unblocked locally.

There is that but since you have LDAP you can login to the machine as admin and bypass filtering automatically.

Otherwise, the only other option is to setup a prompting for auth and log off as the user then login as admin. That would bypass it as well.

I'd re-think your approach if this is your way of providing a workaround for a user to gain access to a site. A better solution would be to create a multi-layer policy and assign the user to it.
