How to add the username of a business user to a custom report on employee data



In our company we are using a Professional Services system without integration to Successfactors. This means we can only adjust our employee data record by using the "import employees" app. This app requires two Excel files to be uploaded. The data in these Excel files contains both generic employee data as well as "employment" data. We have created a custom report so we can easily extract this data in case we want to change one or multiple employees. We are unable to integrate the field "username" of the business user in this report however.

Which CDS view can we use for this? This CDS should preferrably allow a link to the external ID of these employees. If not, a link to the personnel number or business user ID is also helpful.

Kind regards,
