User of $context data from lookup function


Hi there,

I am trying to make use of User Variables i.e., user_name and password from within a Custom Defect plugin.

The problem that I am running into, is that I cannot seem to figure out how to access the $context array from NON Push related functions i.e., the lookup function. It appears as though you have only given access to the $context array to the Push related functions.

Our custom Ticket system requires user credentials when doing searches so our lookup function needs access to the User Variables.

Any guidance here would be greatly appreciated.
