How to get Yellowfin User Name and Org ID from custom JSP page for authenticated user

Karen Saghatelyan shared this question 7 months ago

We are developing a custom JSP page and placing it under appserver//webapps/ROOT/.

This helpful post tells us how to restrict access to this JSP to only authenticated users.

However, we would also need to know the UserName and the ORG ID. Is it possible? Does Yellowfin provide any API for this?

Thank you Eric,


The GETUSER and/or GETUSERBYIP SOAP calls should work for us!


Best regards,
