Get and use email address of user running app

Highlighted

Hi there, is there a way to get the email address of the user running an app on the gallery?

I was thinking of adding a checkbox to each workflow/app that would indicate whether they want an email notification (Event after run w or w/o errors), but not sure how to dynamically get their email address.

Hi @chanmar,

 

The email address may be more difficult, as I'm not sure where you will get that reference from. However, you can get the UserID of the logged in user. This is by using a hidden TextInput function (__cloud:UserId).

 

See this blog post for more information on how to use it.

Hi @chanmar ,

 

Yes, this is possible by joining the __cloud:UserID to a stream that utilizes the Mongo Input tool.  See attached.
