Hi @Anonymous ,

as @lbendlin mentioned, you cannot retrieve these values with Power Query.

How about considering a workaround that fetches the user from the database login instead?
I'm using this function for it:

 

= ()=>
let
    Source = MySQL.Database("myDBconnectionString", "myTableName", [ReturnSingleDatabase=true, Query="SELECT current_user"]),
    current_user = Source{0}[current_user],
    Custom1 = Text.BeforeDelimiter(current_user, "@")
in
    Custom1

Thankfully this is not possible.  If you need that level of control, use Row Level Security and/or Direct Query mode against the Oracle table or view.
