Update user's identity after user's data had been changed in AccountSettings

How do I update data from useGetIdentity when it changes after the user changed his username in account settings for example?
import { Popover, Button } from 'antd';
import React, { useState } from 'react';
import CustomAvatar from '../custom-avatar';
import { useGetIdentity } from '@refinedev/core';

import type { User } from '/graphql/schema.types';
import { Text } from '../text';
import { SettingOutlined } from '@ant-design/icons';
import { AccountSettings } from './account-settings';

const CurrentUser = () => {
const [isOpen, setIsOpen] = useState(false);
const { data: user } = useGetIdentity<User>();

const content = (
<div style={{ display: 'flex', flexDirection: 'column' }}>
<Text strong style={{ padding: '12px 20px' }}>
{user?.username}
</Text>
<div
style={{
borderTop: '1px solid #d9d9d9',
padding: '4px',
display: 'flex',
flexDirection: 'column',
gap: '4px',
}}
>
<Button
style={{ textAlign: 'left' }}
icon={<SettingOutlined />}
type="text"
block
onClick={() => setIsOpen(true)}
>
Account Settings
</Button>
</div>
</div>
);

return (
<>
<Popover
placement="bottomRight"
trigger="click"
overlayInnerStyle={{ padding: 0 }}
overlayStyle={{ zIndex: 999 }}
content={content}
>
<CustomAvatar
username={user?.username}
size="default"
style={{ cursor: 'pointer' }}
/>
</Popover>
{user && (
<AccountSettings
opened={isOpen}
setOpened={setIsOpen}
userId={user.id}
/>
)}
</>
);
};

export default CurrentUser;
import { Popover, Button } from 'antd';
import React, { useState } from 'react';
import CustomAvatar from '../custom-avatar';
import { useGetIdentity } from '@refinedev/core';

import type { User } from '/graphql/schema.types';
import { Text } from '../text';
import { SettingOutlined } from '@ant-design/icons';
import { AccountSettings } from './account-settings';

const CurrentUser = () => {
const [isOpen, setIsOpen] = useState(false);
const { data: user } = useGetIdentity<User>();

const content = (
<div style={{ display: 'flex', flexDirection: 'column' }}>
<Text strong style={{ padding: '12px 20px' }}>
{user?.username}
</Text>
<div
style={{
borderTop: '1px solid #d9d9d9',
padding: '4px',
display: 'flex',
flexDirection: 'column',
gap: '4px',
}}
>
<Button
style={{ textAlign: 'left' }}
icon={<SettingOutlined />}
type="text"
block
onClick={() => setIsOpen(true)}
>
Account Settings
</Button>
</div>
</div>
);

return (
<>
<Popover
placement="bottomRight"
trigger="click"
overlayInnerStyle={{ padding: 0 }}
overlayStyle={{ zIndex: 999 }}
content={content}
>
<CustomAvatar
username={user?.username}
size="default"
style={{ cursor: 'pointer' }}
/>
</Popover>
{user && (
<AccountSettings
opened={isOpen}
setOpened={setIsOpen}
userId={user.id}
/>
)}
</>
);
};

export default CurrentUser;

Hi @chachi. 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 in Refine 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. However, the useGetIdentity hook does not automatically update when the user's data changes. If you want to update the user's identity after the user's data has been changed in AccountSettings, you would need to manually trigger a re-fetch of the useGetIdentity hook. Unfortunately, the provided extracts do not contain specific information on how to trigger a re-fetch of the useGetIdentity hook when the user's data changes. For more information on how to use the useGetIdentity hook, you can refer to the useGetIdentity 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: ----------------------

@kapa.ai Can you try to find a solution to refetching the useGetIdentity hook?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Based on the information provided in the extracts, Refine does not seem to provide a direct way to refetch the useGetIdentity hook. However, you can use a workaround by using the React state to trigger a re-render of the component, which will cause the useGetIdentity hook to run again. Here's a simplified example of how you can do this:
import React, { useState, useEffect } from 'react';
import { useGetIdentity } from '@refinedev/core';

const CurrentUser = () => {
const [key, setKey] = useState(0); // Add a key state
const { data: user } = useGetIdentity();

// Function to update the key state, triggering a re-render
const refreshIdentity = () => {
setKey(prevKey => prevKey + 1);
};

// Call refreshIdentity when the user's data changes
useEffect(() => {
// Replace this with your actual condition
if (userHasChanged) {
refreshIdentity();
}
}, [user]);

// Rest of your component
};
import React, { useState, useEffect } from 'react';
import { useGetIdentity } from '@refinedev/core';

const CurrentUser = () => {
const [key, setKey] = useState(0); // Add a key state
const { data: user } = useGetIdentity();

// Function to update the key state, triggering a re-render
const refreshIdentity = () => {
setKey(prevKey => prevKey + 1);
};

// Call refreshIdentity when the user's data changes
useEffect(() => {
// Replace this with your actual condition
if (userHasChanged) {
refreshIdentity();
}
}, [user]);

// Rest of your component
};
In this example, the key state is used to force a re-render of the component. When the key state changes, the component re-renders, and the useGetIdentity hook runs again, fetching the updated user data. Please note that this is a workaround and may not be the most efficient solution. It's recommended to check the official Refine documentation or reach out to the Refine community for more information. For more details on how to use hooks in Refine, you can refer to the Refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/guides-concepts/general-concepts#hooks-1). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
