Finally, an easy way to perform a state change as another user.
Out of stock
Testing permissions in a workflow can be a long, drawn-out process. Typically it requires logging out as your user, logging in as a representative user, testing the functionality, and then, likely, repeating to try as another user.
What if there was a better way?
Welcome to the magic of Impersonate User. With this PDM Professional add-in transitions can be performed as any vault user while remaining logged in as your default account.
Because it is still using all of the built-in functionality of PDM this is not able to bypass permission issues of that logged in user, allowing for a functional test of their permissions. Similarly, the impersonated user’s password is required because it is actually logging into the vault as that user. All of your security is left intact.
It can even be used to elevate your own permissions if you need to perform an administrative task while logged in as your daily driver user, saving even those frustrating experiences.
This add-in is at the end of its development. If you would like to know when it has been released or if you are interested in pre-release testing, please fill out the form below.
