Impersonate User

Platform Managers have the ability to impersonate any user in the database. This allows them to see what other users will see upon logging in. While impersonating a user, the Platform Manager experiences everything as the user would, but cannot see SSN/NI or credit card information.

Platform Managers can impersonate other Platform Managers. However, users with a cloned Platform Manager role cannot impersonate a user with the Platform Manager role.
