Dear Tobias and Frederick,
Thank you for ShinyProxy! The question: What is the best way to pass custom arguments to the Shiny app?
In our use-case, shinyproxy would sit behind a CMS, and we want to avoid ldap authentication - however, we would like to know the user name inside the shiny app. We are aware that shinyproxy passes the user name to the Shiny app as an environment variable (“SHINYPROXY_USERNAME”), but this seems to be a random hash if ldap authentication is set to “none” in the application.yml file. (Of course shinyproxy can not be aware of the CMS-authentication by default.)
What would be the smartest way to pass the name of the user via ShinyProxy? And in general; what is the best way to pass custom arguments to the Shiny app if we want to use ShinyProxy?
