Model Driven Apps - Get Logged in User

Hi team, I am trying to get the current logged in user email / full name on model driven apps to compare it with a certain field on a CDS entity. Requirement - a user submits a report and says my managers email address / name is "X" (over riding manager field on user level); then the user "X" should be able to see that report. Is this possible. Thanks

Hi @AbhayKacker ,

 

User function is avaible in canvas app, could you please try to embed a canvas app on the model-driven form, then get the current user information using User function?

So in model driven app there is no native way to filter data in entity per current user ?

Is there a way to do it?

 

For example I have to find if a Custom Text Column contains the current user full name in order to filter a view.
