Impersonating Users without password for administrator

Is there a way administrator to not have to enter a password when impersona=
ting a user in bugzilla?

Currently, I'm using Bugzilla 5.0.4 (CentOS 7 OS) using ldap authentication=
.. I can impersonate user fine, but it's takes three tries to successfully r=
e-authenticate with my password. I would prefer not have to use any passwor=
d when trying to impersonate a user.

Is this possible?

No and the reason is documented on the sudo page already:

I don't see any config or hook or else to easily customize this
behaviour, the requirement to login is hard-coded in relogin.cgi.

Do you speak of typing errors or that you are sure to provide the
correct password and are forced to do so 3 times? I am not, but am not
using LDAP. OTOH, I don't see any code specifically related to LDAP,
so it should work for your admin user like a first time login using
LDAP works. If it's about typing errors, use a password manager like
KeePass:
