Hi @jakshire01. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Based on the information provided in the extracts, it seems like you're trying to access the email property of user which might be undefined. This is likely due to the useGetIdentity hook not returning a user object. In the code snippet from the Github discussion (https://github.com/refinedev/refine/discussions/4459), the user is defined as follows:
import { useGetIdentity } from "@refinedev/core";
const { data: user } = useGetIdentity({
v3LegacyAuthProviderCompatible: true,
});
import { useGetIdentity } from "@refinedev/core";
const { data: user } = useGetIdentity({
v3LegacyAuthProviderCompatible: true,
});
If useGetIdentity doesn't return a user object, user will be undefined and trying to access user.email will result in the error you're seeing. To avoid this error, you can add a check to ensure user is defined before trying to access its email property. Here's how you can do it:
if (!user || !user.email) {
return alert("User email is not available");
}
if (!user || !user.email) {
return alert("User email is not available");
}
This code will return and alert the user if user is undefined or if user.email is undefined. If you're still facing issues, it might be a problem with how useGetIdentity is being used or it might not be working as expected. In that case, I would recommend checking the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs) or seeking help from the Refine community. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
