I'm trying to access the "zimbraId" account attribute within the zimlet.xml file (or zimlet.js) to authenticate the user during a web service request from a Zimlet.

I cannot figure out if there is an interface to get the value of the current user's attributes from within the Zimlet.

Even the current user's primary Zimbra email address would be sufficient for my purpose. I just need a value to securely identify the originating Zimbra account during a web service request.

Thanks for any guidance,
