Predefined macros is not working at Web report studio

I have a problem with the predefined macros. I create a stored process that contain predefined macros (_USERNAME). I want to get username from the user. Here is my code :

    %global _USERNAME usernames;

     libname test "*(libref location)";

     %stpbegin;

     DATA test.UsernameData;

          username="&_USERNAME";

     RUN;

     DATA _NULL_;

          SET test.UsernameData;

           call symput("usernames",username);

     RUN;

     %stpend;

When I access it by using SASStoredProcess/do , the stored process is working. Then I try to make a report by using web report studio. First, I create information map and import the stored process to it. Then I create new data item, that will stored the usernames from test.UsernameData. 

I create new web report studio and using the information that I just created. I try to show whether web report studio show the its username or not like in SASStoredProcess/do. The result is empty string.

Is it the macros is not working in web report studio?

Hopefully, anyone could help me to solve the problem. Thank You.
