      Description

      Jenkins should provide variables containing the name and ID (e.g. "Thomas Lehmann" and "t.lehmann") of the currently logged in user as environment variables (e.g. JENKINS_USER_NAME="Thomas Lehmann" and JENKINS_USER_ID="t.lehmann").

      For example, this is useful for deployment promotions where the email notification should contain the name of the user that did the promotion.

          The feature is supported by https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/Build+User+Vars+Plugin
          Even if the feature would be useful "out of the box", the plugin approach allows to update it without updating of the core
