How do I set a Contributor attribute from a Javascript based Calculated Value?

 I need to set a Contributor (e.g. Owner) in Javascript. Somehow I guess that I need to get the user id. How can I find that from a given username?

I've built my own user-management to do such things...

Get the users through this script

Use this method to do so:
function getMembersPaged(args, responseHandler){

Then parse throught the loaded datas..

Or the second and mybe better solution, is to load them via REST-Calls
There you could set the params you'll need.
Those scripts I suggested first are not open and not declared in the API

You can not find the User ID from a given user name in a JavaScript attribute customization. You can print the ID and then put it into a script. See Lab 5 for more explanations and examples. See for how to use Java instead, where you have more access to complex items.
