Hello current logged in user

Quite simply I would like to create content that has structure around the current logged in user. I have not found anything yet that allows me to utilize such data. I thought I could use {user-info:FullName} and {user-info:Email} but presents my information (page creator?) and not the current user viewing the page.

As the page is written I would like to present two things to the user in a greeting to start with.

Hello {logged in user},

Welcome to the marketing team, your email address is {logged in users email address}

Where this would present to the user as

Hello Bob Smith,

Welcome to the marketing team, your email address is bob.smith@example.com

I may have other uses for this but this is the simplist fashion in which it could be used.

Reporting plugin (https://plugins.atlassian.com/plugin/details/186) has user information. Also, the Run Plugin has pre-defined variables including those you listed.

I went with Run Plugin as it had the variables predefined and I may find other uses for it.

The way I ended up implementing this was a wiki html form posting to SalesForce and it works perfectly. Below is a format example of how I implemented it.


Hello, {run-now}$current_user_name

Please use this form to submit your request. This will create a case in SalesForce
<form action="https://www.salesforce.com/servlet/servlet.WebToCase?encoding=UTF-8" method="POST">
<label for="name">Name:&nbsp;&nbsp;</label><input id="name" maxlength="80" name="name" size="20" type="text" value={html}$current_user_name{html} readonly style="border: 0"/><br>
<label for="email">Email:&nbsp;&nbsp;</label><input id="email" maxlength="80" name="email" size="20" type="text" value={html}$current_user_email{html} readonly style="border: 0"/><br>
<input type="submit" name="submit">
