Macro for Logged in User

Hi guys,

I want to set a macro based on the currently logged in username. 
For example if I'm wanting to run a process that loops through the repository of that specific user how would I get the value of that logged in user to use in the process? 
Another option might be if I have a database connection which changes based on the logged in user so that there is an audit trail of any queries or changes that user has made in the SQL logs. 

I'm sure it's just something like %{user}, but could do with confirming.

    the macro is called "_ra_user".

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>
    <process version="7.2.000-SNAPSHOT">
      <operator activated="true" class="process" compatibility="7.2.000-SNAPSHOT" expanded="true" name="Process">
        <process expanded="true">
          <operator activated="true" class="generate_data_user_specification" compatibility="7.2.000-SNAPSHOT" expanded="true" height="68" name="Generate Data by User Specification" width="90" x="45" y="34">
            <list key="attribute_values">
              <parameter key="Test" value="%{_ra_user}"/>
            <list key="set_additional_roles"/>
          <operator activated="true" class="store" compatibility="7.2.000-SNAPSHOT" expanded="true" height="68" name="Store" width="90" x="179" y="34">
            <parameter key="repository_entry" value="UserLoggedInTest"/>
          <connect from_op="Generate Data by User Specification" from_port="output" to_op="Store" to_port="input"/>
          <portSpacing port="source_input 1" spacing="0"/>
          <portSpacing port="sink_result 1" spacing="0"/>

    Thanks Marco! 

    My newest evil plan is to combine this with Single Sign On integration to customize entire analytic web apps based on the logged in user. 
    Using this I'll easily be able to build apps that can be customized even down to the data, imagery & CSS of the app.  Cheers!
