OH3. How to get the name of the current user in Item?

Is it possible in OH3 to get the name of the current user?

The short answer is no. But the bigger question is which current user? At any given time you can have many web ui clients connected to a single OH instance:

  • myopenhab.org
  • Android or iOS apps
  • tablets mounted to the wall
  • computers logged in through a browser

what would be usecase of this btw?

Notifications to someone to say who changed an item…
