Administrator Ability to Log in as Someone Else to Check Security Permissions

Does Dataverse offer a supervisor feature where an administrator can log in (or temporarily "pose") as another user to check firsthand their security permissions without having the user's authentication credentials?

 

For example, an end-user ("Bob") reports that they cannot access rows in Dataverse which he believes he should be able to. Is there a way for the administrator to simulate the user's experience by logging in as Bob to diagnose the problem?

 

I've queried the community forum but don't see any postings which address this.

 

Thank you for any help.

Hi @Chris1969,

 

If using a model-driven app, there is a Check Access button available on the form when viewing a record. If you have the system administrator role, a user Lookup will be available so you can check whether a particular user has access and can really help troubleshoot. The article below describes this in detail.
