Using net.data:

  %DEFINE REMOTE_USER=%ENVVAR  

And later on...

  @DTW_ASSIGN(current_user, REMOTE_USER)

Where current_user is the var you want to manipulate.

If you're not using net.data, you could use an initial net.data macro to
retrieve the user info and any other interesting parms and pass them to
your cgi.  There's probably an API that can do it more elegantly than
that, though.

Subject: [WEB400] Retrieving user name



Is it possible to retrieve the user name that signed on when using the
as400 for security.  I would like to retrieve the name after the server
validates the user so I can apply additional security at the application
level.  Once the user passes the initial signon when requested by the
server and select a link I would like to look up the user name making
the request and see if they are allowed to process that request.
