> This is a scenario where a gateway sits in front of the ambari server host and provides
initial authentication and then forwards the message to the ambari-server. As the gateway
has logged the user, the FE needs to know the name of the logged on user.
> From the UI side we cannot read request headers using javascript, we can only read response
headers and write to request headers. In this case we cannot get info about what user is currently
logged in. 
> BE can send the current user name in response header.
