how to use dbms_session.is_role_enabled in my own session for another user

Last Modified: 2015-02-25
I have this line of code that I need to test for other users:

   IF dbms_session.is_role_enabled('REGISTRAR')
      [such and such]

This works when running AS the user, but I need to test this FOR a user in my own session. is there a way to do that ? Like if there was a parameter for user.

for testing purposes, I can do this another way without using dbms_session but would prefer to be as close to the actual logic as possible.
