Magento: How to get admin user id, name, username, email, etc?

Here is a quick code to get the admin user’s data (id, name, username, email, password, etc).

By admin user, I mean the users that login through the admin panel and those who have access to the admin panel of Magento. The users can be administrator, or with some specific roles.


$userArray = Mage::getSingleton('admin/session')->getData();

$user = Mage::getSingleton('admin/session');
$userId = $user->getUser()->getUserId();
$userEmail = $user->getUser()->getEmail();
$userFirstname = $user->getUser()->getFirstname();
$userLastname = $user->getUser()->getLastname();
$userUsername = $user->getUser()->getUsername();
$userPassword = $user->getUser()->getPassword();

Hope this helps. Thanks.

    Fatal error: Call to a member function getUser() on a non-object in /opt/lampp/htdocs/enlarge/app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/controllers/Catalog/ProductController.php on line 175

    Actually, getData was the problem.

    The following way will not give the error:-

    $user = Mage::getSingleton(‘admin/session’);$userId = $user->getUser()->getUserId();
    I have corrected/edited the post as well.
