    Accessing portal user attributes from within Seam

    Philipp Taprogge Newbie

      Hi!

      I am runnig a Seam application inside a portlet (using the MyFacesGenericPortlet). I now need to access some of the user attributes stored within the portal.
      Usually I would do something like

      Map userInfo = (Map) request.getAttribute(PortletRequest.USER_INFO);
      


      but it seems I have no way to access the request from within Seam.
      Am I just missing something here or is there no way to access user attributes short of using the UserModule?

      Thanks in advance,

      Phil
