Get user name from server login page

Hi All,

As I faced few issues while implement my project in SAP system. I had noted down it here, I hope it may be useful to you.


1. I am using Server login page to access my SAP GW service
2. I need username to display it in my next screen



var oUserData = "";

var usernameService = "/sap/bc/ui2/start_up"; //Standard service

var HttpRequest = "";

HttpRequest = new XMLHttpRequest();

HttpRequest.onreadystatechange = function() {

if (HttpRequest.readyState == 4 && HttpRequest.status == 200) {

oUserData = JSON.parse(xmlHttp.responseText);


}; "GET", usernameService, false );

var usernameFinal =

Thanks, Karthik A

      Hi Karthik,

      Thanks for sharing a detailed blog on this issue. I tried the same code in my onInit function, but I am getting an error - usernameFinal = undefined, oUserData = "".

      Can you please help me with it.
