 Marcin,


You can only get information about the author from the artifacts or you can ask for the user input (variable) when the reporting is generated.

Right now (6.0.6, 6.0.6.1, 7.0) there is no property from where RPE can take information about what user generated the report.


Information will be available on following RPE variables: 

  • _coverComponentTitle
  • _coverComponentDesc
  • _coverComponentURI
  • _coverProjectTitle
  • _coverProjectDesc  Note  This variable provides Project summary information
  • _coverProjectURI
  • _coverConfigurationTitle
  • _coverConfigurationDesc
  • _coverConfigurationURI
  • _coverConfigurationType
