Impersonate a User Account

As an administrator, you can impersonate all other user accounts. While impersonating an account, you can perform operations in Tenable.io as another user without needing to obtain that user's password, or having to log out of your administrator account in order to log in as another user.

To impersonate a user account:

  1. In the top navigation bar, click Settings.

    The About page appears.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Users.

    The Users page appears.

  3. In the users table, click the username of the user that you want to impersonate.

    The Edit User page appears.

  4. In the upper-right corner, click Impersonate.

    You start impersonating the user. The user's default dashboard appears, and the user's name appears in the upper-right corner of the top navigation bar.

To stop impersonating a user account:

  1. In the upper-right corner of the top navigation bar, click the username of the account you are impersonating.

  2. Click Leave User.

    You stop impersonating the user. The Edit User page for the user appears, and your username appears in the upper-right corner of the top navigation bar.
