When creating custom web map printing templates, using the "user" dynamic text element will print the name of the user running the Portal/Server (not sure which one) service on the host machine. This isn't very helpful and could be a security risk if this username is exposed. Without this, our print templates have no user names, which will lead to map printouts having no "trace-ability".
We would like to have the Portal user's username appear (as a dynamic text element) on the template when that user is triggering the print request. One possible use case for this would be: If someone prints the map and provides it to a colleague, the colleague knows who to contact if there were an error or to get access to the map in Portal. I suspect other organizations have similar and additional use cases for this enhancement.
The advanced parameter "author" is available for users to type in a name or account, but this is a step that employees will skip most times as they just need a printout as quickly as possible and don't want additional steps.
