Retrieving User Id in Web API 2 Controller – .NET

Hi everyone,

Just a quick post on how to retrieve the current user’s id in a Web API 2 controller:

var userId = RequestContext.Principal.Identity.GetUserId();

Note that you’ll need the following using statements:

using Microsoft.AspNet.Identity;
using System.Web.Http;

Thanks to the following stackoverflow post for the info: https://stackoverflow.com/a/21618056/522859
