Unable to assign logged in User name on field

Hi All,

I have requirement to pre populate logged in Use name and email address into a form field. I tried assign default value as [entry._user.fullName] and [] but its not getting replaced with the actual user name or email value at the time of viewing the form. I am new to the confluence page design. Looking for your guidance to troubleshoot this issue.

<ac:parameter ac:name="fieldName">ReqName</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="fieldLabel">Requestor Name</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="type">read_only</ac:parameter>
<ac:parameter ac:name="required">true</ac:parameter>

Default value as a parameter in Field Definition expects and supports static values only.

To set the value dynamically you can either use ConfiForms Field Definition Rules or use the following approach 

Please also note that there is really no need to track this information manually as each record in ConfiForms tracks created/createdBy metadata for you automatically (among some other fields )


Thanks a lot Alex. The approach defined on the has worked for me.
