How to retrieve the current user in a Web Form rule using a REST call

Applies to:

Oracle Business Process Management Suite - Version 11.1.1.7.0 to 12.1.3.0.0 [Release 11gR1 to 12c]
Oracle Process Cloud Service - Version N/A and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Web Form Rules have a predefined variable called subject.id. This variable contains the id of the current user. At this time, the value is returned encoded in Base32, therefore it needs to be decoded to make it readable.

Here we provide an example call to the Identity Service REST API to obtain some of those values.
