How to know current User ID

edited November 2022 in Modeling


I am trying to create a DCA where in the requestor should be the only one to be able to Submit a request. In this example for this module, I am logged in as user id [email protected]. since the requestor is [email protected], the Submit checkbox should be disabled since me(Camille) is not the requestor.




Is there a way to do this in Anaplan?

    Hi @Ana22 ,


    Assuming the following:

    - Requestors are end users (as opposed to admins)

    - The request module is dimensioned by users list

    The end users would not be able to access other users, so you need not take any other actions (DCA etc), unless required by other processes.


    Hope this helps!

    Hi @Ana22,

    You should be able to do this with DCA.

    -create a module with users list and add 2 line items (write and read).
    -tick boolean [email protected] for write line item and other line item(read) - Not Write line item.
    -apply this across read and write driver in BP view of Submit Line item.
