    Hello,

    I faced the same issue a couple of days ago. I presume that you're using NWDS to develop, and using a SAPUI5 web based project. To get the logged user from SAP Portal in your SAPUI5 project, you should use class com.sap.security.api.UMFactory, which is a interface of user settings. It is also possible to get specific details by using this class, just like name, address, roles, and so on.

    I suppose your using servlet to update your model. For the first servlet call (or for each model update), try the below code:

    IUser user= UMFactory.getAuthenticator().getLoggedInUser(request, response);
    if(null==user){
    // forces username
    UMFactory.getAuthenticator().forceLoggedInUser(request, response);
    }
    String userName =request.getRemoteUser();
