In author mode, we can read the current user/details by below variable

CQ_User

CQ_User.data.userID

Hi Ravi,

I've just checked this in 6.3 and found CQ_User.data.userID works only in Classic UI whereas Granite.HTTP.externalize('/libs/granite/security/currentuser.json'); Ajax approach is compatible with both UI.

Hi Arun,

Thanks for the details. But when I tried in AEM 6.4 and AEM 6.4 SP2 I am able to see CQ_User variable, not sure whether it is added back
