How to get logged in user in SAP Cloud Platform (Neo environment)

Github repository:

To be published soon…

 

Introduction:

  • In this session, we will look at how to get the logged in user in SAP Cloud Platform (Neo environment)

 

Synopsis:

  • SAP Cloud Platform can be set up with any Identity Provider that supports SAML
  • When building SAPUI5 applications, we can require that users be authenticated against this Identity Provider
  • There may be many instances where you might want to display user specific messages on the home page (for example, some form of welcome message) – and for this you need to know the logged in user

 

Steps:

  • SAP Cloud Platform provides an userapi service that can readily give you the current logged in user
  • So it’s just a matter of calling the userapi service from within your application and displaying the user information in the user interface
  • We could make a simple REST API call using the window’s fetch command in our controller files
