Triggered in: Winter\Storm\Auth\Manager.php

Called before the user in question is impersonated. Current user is false when either the system or a user from a separate authentication system authorized the impersonation. Use this to override the results of $user->canBeImpersonated() if desired.

Example usage:

$model->bindEvent('model.auth.beforeImpersonate', function (\Winter\Storm\Auth\Models\User|false $impersonator) use (\Winter\Storm\Models\Auth\User $model) {
    \Log::info($impersonator->full_name . ' is attempting to impersonate ' . $model->full_name);

    // Ignore the results of $model->canBeImpersonated() and grant impersonation access
    // return true;

    // Ignore the results of $model->canBeImpersonated() and deny impersonation access
    // return false;
