NPS Runaway query event session username like we had on PDA


We have some NPS events configured, one of them is "NPS Runaway Query" which is created from template as should be.

When we got notification mail, there is a lot information about event which is ok, and in section "Additional Data" we can see session details like ips_property_sessionId 2390906 for eg. but we cannot see crucial info like which user is owner of this session.

Is it possible to include session username in NPS Runaway Query notification? We had that information on PDA.

For eg. for "transaction limit event" we have variable both for user (eg User: ETL) and Session id: 732730 which is really cool:

NPS system e1n1 - current number (118382) of transactions exceeded 90 % of total limit 131535 at 12-May-23, 11:44:41 CEST.

Oldest Active Transaction:

txid: 0xd279d70

Session id: 732730

PID: 257477

Database: DWH

User: ETL

Client IP:

Client PID: 1596

Transaction start date: 2023-05-11 18:28:30

Would it be feasible to just add a variable to user somewhere for Runaway query event, considering we already have sessionid?

This would enable more efficient server workload monitoring.
