Although we have the run with elevated privileges option , In some cases  we need to execute specific functions with specific  user account privileges .Impersonation is very common when we are dealing with SharePoint services.


Initiate site object with different user token and execute code under nitiated site. You can do following

  • Create impersonate SPWeb object inside impersonated site object.
  • Get impersonate SPContext using impersonated site object.
  • Get impersonate SPServiceContext using impersonated site object.

You need to have a specific domain account to use as impersonate user. In my case I have setup a Secure Service Store Application key to retrieve impersonate user information
