Possible to get information about user executing a custom command in Splunk from within the Python script?

Path Finder

I have a custom script that I've defined as a command in commands.conf. I've tried adding passauth and enableheader, but I'm not seeing anything pertaining to the username of the Splunk user executing the command in Splunk in os.environ. Is there something I need to import and call to reveal this information?

[test]
type = python
filename = test.py
local = true
passauth = true
enableheader = true
