Why does the useGetIdentity did not work

i've tried printing it out and data and image is not undefined except for the user where i just use the useGetIdentity in the following code export const CreateStudent = () => { const { data: user } = useGetIdentity(); console.log("just got it user:", user) const [studentImage, setStudentImage] = useState({ name: "", url: "" }); const { refineCore: { onFinish, formLoading }, register, handleSubmit, } = useForm(); const handleImageChange = (file: File) => { const reader = (readFile: File) => new Promise<string>((resolve, reject) => { const fileReader = new FileReader(); fileReader.onload = () => resolve(fileReader.result as string); fileReader.onerror = reject; // Handle FileReader errors fileReader.readAsDataURL(readFile); }); reader(file) .then((result: string) => setStudentImage({ name: file?.name, url: result }) ) .catch((error) => console.error("Error reading file:", error)); };

Hi @Luckman. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- The useGetIdentity hook is used to get the user's identity. It calls the getIdentity method from the authProvider under the hood. The data that is resolved from the getIdentity will be returned as the data in the query result. If the getIdentity method does not resolve any data, then the data property of useGetIdentity will be undefined. In your case, if the user is undefined, it might be because the getIdentity method in your authProvider is not returning any data. Here is an example of how getIdentity method can be implemented in the authProvider:
import { AuthProvider } from "@refinedev/core";

const authProvider: AuthProvider = {
// ---
getIdentity: async () => {
const user = localStorage.getItem("auth");

if (user) {
const { email, roles } = JSON.parse(user);

return { email, roles };
}

return null;
},
// ---
};
import { AuthProvider } from "@refinedev/core";

const authProvider: AuthProvider = {
// ---
getIdentity: async () => {
const user = localStorage.getItem("auth");

if (user) {
const { email, roles } = JSON.parse(user);

return { email, roles };
}

return null;
},
// ---
};
In this example, the getIdentity method is getting the user's identity from the local storage. If the user's data is found in the local storage, it returns the user's email and roles. If not, it returns null. You should check your authProvider's getIdentity method implementation to make sure it is correctly returning the user's data. For more information, you can refer to the useGetIdentity documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/authentication/hooks/use-get-identity/) and the getIdentity documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/authentication/auth-provider#getidentity). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
