Short description:
Possibility to have information about the initiator of startup of the process instance. It mostly refers to usage via BPM console and its components (RESTful interface).

Sebastian suggested a quite complete solution for this with usage of already available methods in ProcessEngine.

With regards to that I have a questions:
- how that user information should be exposed to the process instance/execution?
- is it possible to reference to it from jpdl?

Obviously this requires development in both jBPM runtime and BPM console. As a intermediate solution I would like to suggest to give users of jBPM access to request information on the form (both task and process). Since forms are freemarker templates it is a matter of providing additional objects to the context prior to rendering.
This should give users quite easy way to get user info and some additional stuff if needed (especially when executing via REST interface without UI).
Development affects BPM console and its plugins without jBPM runtime.

What's your opinion?
