Display logged in user name in the navigation.

Hi Forum, I was trying to display the name of a user in the side nav-bar (web app for phone view). Also while trying it out, I tried it using a microflow i.e. using currentUser to know who is logged in. but that too cant display it in the navigation.  I could not find a way to achieve this. Please let me know if there is a way by which I can achieve this.

In your layout in the ‘region-sidebar’ place a snippet. In this snippet you can place a dataview with datasource microflow, you can retrieve the current user with this microflow and display the name in the dataview.


There are multiple possible styles to retrieve the account of the currently logged in user:

Database & xPath

Parsing the currentUser




I would opt for the second
