$POD->changeActor()

$newCurrent = $POD->changeActor($params)

Takes the same parameters as $POD->getPerson(), except instead of just returning a person object, also sets the $POD's currentUser and isAuthenticated status.

This can be used to switch primary users mid-execution, for example in the event that you create a new user who should then take over execution.

Note: If the user fails to load, isAuthenticated will be false and currentUser will be null.
