Hi,

 

please don't do that. Imagine what happens if the result of such a request is stored in the dispatcher cache and returned to the next user requesting the same page.

Hi,

You cannot get it in HTL. You need to write a java or javascript use api for https://github.com/arunpatidar02/aem63app-repo/blob/master/java/SimpleGetGroup.java 

User currentUser = request.getResourceResolver().adaptTo(User.class);

and you make sure the page/content is not cached in case of logged in user otherwise you will have same version of content for all the users (cached version)

Hi @Dinu_Arya ,
You can get user information using "UserManagementService" in sling model and then in sightly.

Consider this code is written in sling model.

 

Declare or Inject required variables and Services

private String userID;

private String userName;
private List<String> userGroupsList =new ArrayList<>();

@SlingObject
ResourceResolver resourceResolver;

@OSGiService
UserManagementService userManagementService;

 In @PostConstruct use this code to get User and User's Groups information

String anonymousID = userManagementService != null ? userManagementService.getAnonymousId() : UserConstants.DEFAULT_ANONYMOUS_ID;
userID=resourceResolver.getUserID();
UserManager userManager=resourceResolver.adaptTo(UserManager.class);

if(userManager!=null){
Iterator<Group> userGroups= userManager.getAuthorizable(userID).memberOf();
while (userGroups.hasNext()){
Group group=userGroups.next();
userGroupsList.add(group.getID());
}

}
UserPropertiesManager userPropertiesManager=resourceResolver.adaptTo(UserPropertiesManager.class);
if (userPropertiesManager != null) {
UserProperties userProperties = userPropertiesManager.getUserProperties(userID, "profile");
for (String userProperty : userProperties.getPropertyNames()) {
LOG.info("\n User Properties {} : {} ",userProperty,userProperties.getProperty(userProperty));
}
userName=userProperties.getDisplayName();

}

Get working demo code from get.
