Impersonate Users

Options

Is there a current way to impersonate users in Domo? It would be helpful to do this to test what our users issues are firsthand, see how specific pdp policies look before implementing, and sandboxing UX

    Yes, it works for an admin as well. Hit the shield icon and choose Select policies. Then you can pick which policy or policies you want to have enabled at any time. This works for any user that exists in multiple policies, including Admins.

    @cookx775 Unfortunately, there is no current way to impersonate users in Domo. Something that is common is to have a "test" or "service" user that Admins can use for PDP and other feature testing and implementation.

    The other way to work with testing PDP is to add yourself to different policies and then use the policy selector at the top of a card or dashboard to switch between them and see the result. That can be a good way to quickly test multiple policies without needing to change users.

    @zcameron does that still work even though I have admin privileges? I may be doing it incorrectly, but it seems the admin role supersedes the pdps
