Username of triggering user in Pipelines Edited

Is it possible to get the username of triggering user for bitbucket pipelines. That would be the user who made the commit that triggered the pipeline or the one who triggered it manually from the interface.

My use case is as follows:

User John Doe triggers a manual pipeline "Deploy to Prod"

Pipeline sends a message to a HipChat room that notifies users in the room

"User "jdoe" is deploying project "ui" to production, based on a commit abc1234. You have 5 minutes to yell NO if you know a reason why this should not happen" 

Pipeline will then sleep for 5 minutes before proceeding.


I know that communication within the company is the key, but this would be something that would give us some additional peace of mind. Since human communication tends to be the weakest link in any system.
