Cannot find name 'IIdentity when using the hook useGetIdentity

import { useGetIdentity } from "@refinedev/core"; const { data: identity } = useGetIdentity<IIdentity>(); I am using the hook like this, but I faced with the problem that Cannot find name 'IIdentity, how to fix this problem? should the interface IIdentity be defiend by myself?

Hi @zion_48046. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Yes, you're correct. The IIdentity in your code is a TypeScript interface that you need to define yourself. This interface should match the shape of the data returned by the getIdentity method in your authProvider. For example, if your getIdentity method returns an object with id and fullName properties like this:
const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
// ---
getIdentity: async () => {
return {
id: 1,
fullName: "Jane Doe",
};
},
// ---
};
const authProvider: AuthBindings = {
// ---
getIdentity: async () => {
return {
id: 1,
fullName: "Jane Doe",
};
},
// ---
};
Then you should define your IIdentity interface like this:
interface IIdentity {
id: number;
fullName: string;
}
interface IIdentity {
id: number;
fullName: string;
}
And then you can use it with the useGetIdentity hook:
import { useGetIdentity } from "@refinedev/core";

const { data: identity } = useGetIdentity<IIdentity>();
import { useGetIdentity } from "@refinedev/core";

const { data: identity } = useGetIdentity<IIdentity>();
This way, TypeScript will know the type of the identity data and you will get autocompletion and type checking benefits. For more information, you can refer to the useGetIdentity documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/core/hooks/auth/use-get-identity/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
