Is there a way outside of the Web Game Manager to Change Which Account a Device ID is linked to?

Our testing department would like to be able to "switch players" for a Device ID to a new Player ID. This would mean force linking the Device ID to a new Player ID which they wouldn't normally be able to access. Currently, we have only found that we can do this in the Game Manager web screens, but have not found a way to do this with any APIs (admin, server, or rightfully the client).

I understand the security implications of doing this, though we're looking to do this in a testing title. Is there any way to do what we want?

Since this is for a test title, the simplest thing to do would be to have the test folks add a Custom ID to each account which is simply the PlayFab ID of the player account. That way, they can just sign into the account using that, and use the ForceLink option to link that account with the device ID.

Ah, yes. I was thinking around that but couldn't quite connect the dots. Thanks!
