Impersonate user in Tableau server site

Whereas you can impersonate a user in Tableau Desktop using user filters, you cannot impersonate a user in Tableau server to check their site permissions. This is a very helpful testing tool that I used previously in Oracle BIEE. In order to test a user's security we would have to create and replicate a user's security with a test user. However there are circumstances where that might not cover the issues/potential questions that a user might have.

 

Thanks!
