Inbound Impersonation

The 4.0 Deep Dive mentions Inbound Impersonation, but I don’t see anything in the documentation about it. Is there more info about this available anywhere?

This is only partially implemented in the Community edition. You’ll need to dive into the code and implement a custom class for the InboundImpersonationManager, and reference it in UserServer.java. Or at least that is my understanding.

Correct, inbound impersonation is an enterprise edition only feature.

Is there any documentation on how to use it in EE?

From reading the code, I believe you add a parameter to your connection string in the form; IMPERSONATION_TARGET=user_to_impersonate

That’s an educated guess, based on reading the community edition code. But I’m not sure what other configuration options are involved for security, etc…
