Permission Set - Login as Any User for QA

What System Permissions or Apps Access will allow a typical user access to Login as Any User for QA purposes?  I've tried System Permissions:  "Modify All Data" + "Manage Users" + "View All Data" + "View Setup and Configuration" without success.

Can I only accomplish this with ANOTHER Profile? or System Admin Access?

The way that we made this work was to create a delegated group "User Delegated Administration".  Setup > Administer > Security Controls > Delegated Administration.

I have my specific User setup with User Administration rights to login as the specific profiles (all except Sys Admin in our case) and made sure the check the "Enable Group for Login Access" box. 

I ran into the same issues you did, trying to setup a Permission Set, but it didn't seem possible. I only had the one user, if you have quite a few you might want a separate profile.

I'm hoping to add this to a Regular user as a Permission Set.
