accessControlProvider getIdentity hook

How can i access the hook const { data: user } = useGetIdentity<IIdentity | null>(); in an AccessControlProvider import { AccessControlProvider } from "@refinedev/core"; export const accessControlProvider: AccessControlProvider = { can: async ({ resource, action, params }) => { console.log(resource); // products, orders, etc. console.log(action); // list, edit, delete, etc. console.log(params); // { id: 1 }, { id: 2 }, etc. if (meetSomeCondition) { return { can: true }; } return { can: false, reason: "Unauthorized", }; }, };

Hi @Joe Gaffney. 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 current user's identity. However, it's not directly used within the AccessControlProvider. Instead, it's typically used within a component to fetch the user's identity. Here's an example of how you might use it:
import { useGetIdentity } from "@refinedev/core";

export const User = () => {
const { data: identity } = useGetIdentity<IIdentity>();

return <span>{identity?.fullName}</span>;
};

type IIdentity = {
id: number;
fullName: string;
};
import { useGetIdentity } from "@refinedev/core";

export const User = () => {
const { data: identity } = useGetIdentity<IIdentity>();

return <span>{identity?.fullName}</span>;
};

type IIdentity = {
id: number;
fullName: string;
};
In this example, useGetIdentity is used to fetch the user's identity, which is then displayed. If you want to use the user's identity within the AccessControlProvider, you would need to fetch it separately and pass it in as a parameter to the can method. However, the extracts provided do not contain an example of this. For more information on useGetIdentity, you can refer to the documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/authentication/hooks/use-get-identity/). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- In the accessControlProvider, you can't directly use hooks like useGetIdentity to get the user's identity. However, you can use the authProvider's getPermissions and getIdentity methods inside the accessControlProvider method. Here's a pseudo code example from the Github issue (https://github.com/refinedev/refine/issues/3924) discussion:
const authProvider = { ..., getPermissions: () => { /* your implementation */ } }

// accessControlProvider.ts
import { authProvider } from './authProvier';

const accessControlProvider = {
can: async () => {
const permissions = authProvider.getPermissions()
// ...
}
}
const authProvider = { ..., getPermissions: () => { /* your implementation */ } }

// accessControlProvider.ts
import { authProvider } from './authProvier';

const accessControlProvider = {
can: async () => {
const permissions = authProvider.getPermissions()
// ...
}
}
In this example, authProvider.getPermissions() is used to get the permissions of the user. You can implement this method to return the roles of the user. Similarly, you can use authProvider.getIdentity() to get the identity of the user. Remember, the actual implementation of these methods will depend on how you're handling authentication and authorization in your application. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai how can i do this and have it like the example with it in seperate file import { AccessControlProvider } from "@refinedev/core"; export const accessControlProvider: AccessControlProvider = { can: async ({ resource, action, params }) => { console.log(resource); // products, orders, etc. console.log(action); // list, edit, delete, etc. console.log(params); // { id: 1 }, { id: 2 }, etc. if (meetSomeCondition) { return { can: true }; } return { can: false, reason: "Unauthorized", }; }, };

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- To use the authProvider's getPermissions and getIdentity methods inside the accessControlProvider, you would need to import your authProvider into the same file where you define your accessControlProvider. Here's a pseudo code example:
// authProvider.ts
export const authProvider = {
// ... other methods
getPermissions: async () => {
// Your implementation to get user permissions
},
getIdentity: async () => {
// Your implementation to get user identity
},
};

// accessControlProvider.ts
import { AccessControlProvider } from "@refinedev/core";
import { authProvider } from './authProvider';

export const accessControlProvider: AccessControlProvider = {
can: async ({ resource, action, params }) => {
const permissions = await authProvider.getPermissions();
const identity = await authProvider.getIdentity();

console.log(resource); // products, orders, etc.
console.log(action); // list, edit, delete, etc.
console.log(params); // { id: 1 }, { id: 2 }, etc.
console.log(permissions); // user permissions
console.log(identity); // user identity

if (/* some condition based on permissions and identity */) {
return { can: true };
}

return {
can: false,
reason: "Unauthorized",
};
},
};
// authProvider.ts
export const authProvider = {
// ... other methods
getPermissions: async () => {
// Your implementation to get user permissions
},
getIdentity: async () => {
// Your implementation to get user identity
},
};

// accessControlProvider.ts
import { AccessControlProvider } from "@refinedev/core";
import { authProvider } from './authProvider';

export const accessControlProvider: AccessControlProvider = {
can: async ({ resource, action, params }) => {
const permissions = await authProvider.getPermissions();
const identity = await authProvider.getIdentity();

console.log(resource); // products, orders, etc.
console.log(action); // list, edit, delete, etc.
console.log(params); // { id: 1 }, { id: 2 }, etc.
console.log(permissions); // user permissions
console.log(identity); // user identity

if (/* some condition based on permissions and identity */) {
return { can: true };
}

return {
can: false,
reason: "Unauthorized",
};
},
};
In this example, authProvider.getPermissions() and authProvider.getIdentity() are used to get the permissions and identity of the user. You can implement these methods to return the roles and identity of the user. Remember, the actual implementation of these methods will depend on how you're handling authentication and authorization in your application. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
