Using Lightning Data Service
Now we have that access to that. But we need to expose it in our app. So what I’m going to do is have
id here and I’m going to just assign the
userId to it. If I add in reference to the
id in the markup, I should be able to get the mark
id for the current user. At the very bottom here, I am going to just add paragraph tag, that tells me that it’s the user id.
Now, this is going to be the
id of the user who’s logged in. I’m going to push this real quick.
Go back here, refresh it and I should see…
Going to refresh it and clear out the cache and I should see the ID at the bottom. There we go, user ID.
Now to use the Lightning Data Service we have to we are going now to use the Lightning Data Service we’re going to use the
lightning-record-view-form to get the user information.

lightning-record-view-form and then we provide it a
and we have provided an
object-api-name that is not ready for a save

except up here. We’re going to actually spell out
I had misspelled
Remember, clear the cache and refresh.
What happened is, I had misspelled
record, so don’t do that
Redeploying and refreshing we now have access to our company name. Let’s see if we can get rid of where it says company name though, just in case we don’t want that. So to make it so that we don’t have a company name, what we do is add
And we will use the variant of
And we are going to add that to both of them.
Remove the user ID from the bottom and the name at the bottom to just get all deployed at once.
Refresh the page.
There. Now this is coming from the user who’s logged in. Can we prove that it’s coming from the user that’s logged in? Well, let’s go to our settings and update our company name.
What’s out a few exclamation marks, because, why not?
Now go back to home
Something broke. There it is. took a moment to load up. So there you go. We’re now getting our company name using the lightning data service.
That’s it for now.
