Below is an example of how to get various attributes associated to the user:

1import user from '@adobe/exc-app/user';
3const [org, name, orgs, token, profile, locale, subOrg, tenant, languages] = await Promise.all([
4 user.get('imsOrg'),
5 user.get('imsOrgName'),
6 user.get('imsOrgs'),
7 user.get('imsToken'),
8 user.get('imsProfile'),
9 user.get('locale'),
10 user.get('subOrg'),
11 user.get('tenant'),
12 user.get('preferredLanguages')

Receiving updates#

You can also listen for updates on the requested data by listening to specific change events.

These change events are emitted from the api that the data is requested from. For example, if a user calls await user.get('locale'); they must listen for the change event on user.on('change:locale'). If a user calls await user.get('imsOrg') they must listen for the change event on user.on('change:imsOrg'). Here is a more detailed example of how the promise api and change events can be used to keep track of specific values from the config:

Copied to your clipboard
1import user from '@adobe/exc-app/user';
3constructor() {
4 this.state = {org: null, shell: {}};
6 user.on('change:imsOrg', (org) => {
7 this.setState({org});
8 });
11async componentDidMount() {
12 const org = await user.get('imsOrg');
13 this.setState({org});
