ThreadUserBinderServlet takes the atg/dynamo/security/User component that was previously associated to the request by SessionServlet and associates it to the request thread itself. You can find which User component the ThreadUserBinderServlet component uses in the userComponentName property. If a User component does not exist in the request, ThreadUserBinder creates one.

This servlet makes user information available to other security-related portions of the Oracle ATG Web Commerce platform so be sure to insert ThreadUserBinderServlet before any security components that expect user information.
