Making a Workspace App, is there a way to get a username verified with windows authentication/SSO, and have that username be a parameter in the workspace?

I am making a self service map generator workspace app.


My want is to be able to verify a username by using either SSO/Windows authentication. then I have a script that has outputted all the groups and its users in our ArcPortal in a spreadsheet. so I can relate their username to the group they’re in which then I’ll use a testfilter as to what layers each group is allowed to use in their map.


Unless there’s an easier way to go about this?

I’m not 100% sure that I follow your specific requirements, however, I do know that there is an FME Server parameter which returns the user running the Workspace:


If your users are using SSO to log into FME Server and run the App then this parameter should return the user name.
