Integrate user credentials in UDF

I need to connect to an external system in an UDF. Is there a way to get the credentials of user querying UDF so that the same can be user to connect to an external system?

Hi, From my experience working with Custom Functions, you can access information like user, roles or database, using this method: ``` CustomElementsUtil.getQueryContext(); ``` That method returns a bean QueryContext with context information, however, the password is not included (I guess for security reasons). It comes to my mind that you could create a datasource for querying that external system using the option “Pass through session credentials” and then query that data source from the custom function. Hope this helps!
