Detailed Description

In a workspace session, a user is generally represented by &sysuserid or SYS_COMPUTE_SESSION_OWNER if it exists. In a Stored Process session, &sysuserid resolves to a system account (default=sassrv) and instead there are several metadata username variables to choose from (_metauser, _metaperson ,_username, _secureusername). The OS account is represented by _secureusername whilst the metadata account is under _metaperson.

%let user= %mf_getUser();
%put &user;
SYSUSERID (if workspace server)
_METAPERSON (if stored process server)
SYS_COMPUTE_SESSION_OWNER (if Viya compute session)
