Look at the reserved macro variables &_metauser, &_rmtuser and &_username to identify the user that requests the stored process.

Re: How add identity-driven filter in SAS stored proces

Step one: verify that _metauser or another of the named macro variables contains the name you want when a STP executes (write a simple STP that just displays the macro variables)

Step two: verify that the username so derived matches the username in the datasets you use for building the filter

Step three: from what I know, one can't define a where condition for dynamic data in prompts. So you might have to do two STPs in succession:

- STP1 generates a HTML form with the subset of values that you want

- the form then calls (on submit) STP2 (which is your current STP) with the values from the HTML form in the URL
