See my comment below for how to do this.

To anyone trying to access instance variables from within the datatable controller, pass the instance variable to a method within a helper. For example:

ruby
# application_helper.rb
module ApplicationHelper
  def user_name
    @user.name
  end
end

# datatables/my_datatable.rb
class MyDatatable
   ...
   def hello_method
     "Hello, #{@view.user_name}"
   end
end
