if your extension extends AbstractAdvisor then getAuthenticatedContributor() should do it..

in eclipse, inside the advisor, on a blank line, hit ctrl-spacebar for the content assist feature.. it will show you all the known methods available in that context.

Usually a server extension needs to extend AbstractService or AbstractSCMService which provide the getAuthenticatedContributor().

Note, that gives you all the user information available in the Jazz Environment, except the password. The latter is not accessible, as far as I can tell.
