How do I access the name of the currently logged in user?.
From the Online Help
/myUser/... This property can be used only if the current session is associated with:
the predefined "admin" user, a user defined as "local", or a user defined by a Directory Provider (LDAP or ActiveDirectory).
This property cannot be used if the user is a "project principal", which is normally the case when running inside a Commander step.
For example, with an interactive login you can use:
ectool getProperty /myUser/userName (to get the user name of the logged in user, or...) ectool getProperty /myUser/email (to get the email address)
# Get the current userName
# This has to be handled differently if this code is running from within a Commander Step vs. externally.
# The property /myUser/userName can only be used when NOT in a Commander Step.
# In that case, use the property /myJob/launchedByUser.
my $ec = ElectricCommander->new();
my $userProperty = '';
$userProperty = '/myJob/launchedByUser';
$userProperty = '/myUser/userName';
my $xpath = $ec->getProperty($userProperty);
my $currentUser = $xpath->findvalue('//value')->string_value;
print "currentUser = $currentUser\n";
