Gets the current user info from the session in on-device storage where it is stored after a successful login.

In most cases, you should store the current user info to an app variable after successfully calling the Authenticate user or Validate session flow function.

If the current user was found from the on-device storage, the first output is triggered.

If the current user was not found, the second output is triggered.

To use this flow, your app must have its authentication type set as AppGyver Hosted Auth or AppGyver Cloud Auth.
