Propagating User IDs

Enables the back end to use the information in the X-SMP-ENDUSERNAME <username> header to identify the user who sent a request.

Consider a scenario in which only the technical user ID, and not the user name of the mobile device appears in the back end. An administrator can now set the Propagate User Name option to true in SAP Mobile Services, which adds an X-SMP-ENDUSERNAME <username> HTTP header to outgoing requests, and securely passes the user name to the back end. The back-end service uses the information to apply additional filters that ensure that the information about the user who sent the request appears, even though the technical user made the request.
