So I have a WFS layer on QGIS, served by geoserver from a postgis table that around 10 to 20 people contribute to by adding new features or editing existing ones. I have a column called creator but not everyone bothers updating it and it would be most useful to see which user did what edit.
I was able to add a column that automatically gives the date but I wonder if it would be possible to have the creator column being automatically updated depending on the user.
Would different projects do the trick or is there another way?
Edit: I have a table with ids 1 to 24 on one column, and their corresponding names on the second column but trying to figure out how to use QGIS's apparent new feature to do this
Edit2: there seems to be a 2.18 QGIS bug while working with WFS, sometimes the layers don't want to show up and this happens to several users. If there's any other solution that doesn't involve 2.18 it would be most helpful
