How to retrieve User Session in Xcelsius 2008


I am currently building dashboards with some securities on display. The dashboards have to show different views (e.g. Manager view with full access of data and Employee view with partial access of data) for different users, and I expect to get the user information (particularly user name) from the BO user session for making the security decision.

I can successfully retrieve the user session from Dashboard [url button] to JSP using openDocument (by looking at the cookies), but it seems that I have no way to import the data back to the Dashboard. When I am using Data Manager > XML Data (With XML datasource is a JSP file), it seems the user session cannot be retrieved.

So, my question is, how to retrieve the user Name in Xcelsius 2008 ?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
