Add more system values for composite smartobjects
With the transition to K2 Cloud and generic app development (marketplace), the usage of composite smartobjects for solutions becomes more and more inevitable.
Composite smartobojects have the possibility the add 'system values' to a method. Right now there are only 4 of these available, one of which is the users FQN.
It would be very helpfull if there would be more system and environment values availble. E.g.
- User display name
- System time
- User time
- Environment variables to choose from
This way these fields wont have to be populated by the different forms every time, but can be populated 'behind the scenes' by the specific method.

User display name and system time has been added in K2 5.4 and have been available in K2 Cloud for quite some time now.
User time cannot be supplied as a system value within a SmartObject mapping because the server does not have access to a user's configured time - User time should be supplied through a smartForm input mapping through the current time context field.
