Gets the name of an authenticated user.
The name of an authenticated user.
ColdFusion MX: Added this function.
This function works with cflogin authentication or web server authentication. It checks for a logged-in user as follows:
- It checks for a login made with cfloginuser.
- If no user was logged in with cfloginuser, it checks for a web server login (cgi.remote_user).
From ColdFusion 11 onwards, this function is not applicable when a user is logged in using Admin API.
