Getting Current user Id on page component

Jump to solution

Hello everyone,

Im working on an ADF app which connects to my ECM repository, the purpose of the app is to have a more responsive alternative to consumers so the can view and download documents even on their cellphones, for this i have created a custom page component for each site on my repository, and on the home page i want to display the links for the sites which the current user has access to, but for this i use this api AlfrescoApiService..getInstance().core.sitesApi.getSiteMember(sitename, userId ) and i need to somehow obtain the id of the user that has accessed the app,

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks a lot

The "alfresco-js-api" version is outdated. I believe storing logged in usernames for process/content services was added in 1.5.0. Could you please update it to "1.5.0" and run "npm install" once again?

You can try using "AlfrescoAuthenticationService" if you want to get access to current username. The service exposes a method "getEcmUsername".

export class MyComponent {
  constructor(private authService: AlfrescoAuthenticationService) {}

  myMethod() {
    console.log(
      this.authService.getEcmUsername()
    );
  }
}

It should return value for logged in user. Are you sure you are logged in at the time of ngOnInit call or your HomeComponent?

When i inspect the page it gives me this result

the login was succesful and the true value was the result of "console.log(this.authService.isLoggedIn());"

the undefined value is the result of asking the current logged user
