ASP.NET (C#) Question

How to get the current logged in user Id ASP.NET Core

I've done this before with MVC5 using

User.Identity.GetUserId()
but that doesn't seem to work here.
The
User.Identity
doesnt have the
GetUserId()
method

I am using
Microsoft.AspNet.Identity

Answer

I included using System.Security.Claims and I could access the GetUserId() extension method

NB: I had the using Microsoft.AspNet.Identity already but couldn't get the extension method. So I guess both of them have to be used in conjunction with one another

using Microsoft.AspNet.Identity;
using System.Security.Claims;
