When impersonating a user, a new IMClient instance that acts on behalf of the specified user is returned.

To impersonate users, the user creating the initial IMClient needs to have the impersonation privilege. Only users in the superuser group have this privilege.


The client variable in the following code examples refers to the IMClient instance. When using the Web SDK, the variable name can be chosen freely, but it is also called client at instantiation in the documentation.

To impersonate a user (e.g "Demo.User" ):

IMClient impersonationClient = await MClient.ImpersonateAsync("Demo.User");
