How to set the User Principal

I have the next scenario:

Browser is sending HTTP request, which activates a controller on the WAS.

When calling: WSSubject.getCallerPrincipal, request.getUserPrincipal, request.getRemoteUser I have the user that activated the http request.

I need from the controller to activate a new HTTP request to another WAS (currently, it will be the same WAS, but will be separated in the future).

I want that the user principal of the first request will be transferred as the user principal of the second call.

Is it possible?

If not - I can workaround it, it I can define an application user that will always be the activated user, but now also that doesnt work - since I am getting null for the user principal in the second activation.

Thank You.
