getMember( )

Retrieves the currently logged-in member.

Description

The getMember() function returns a Promise that resolves to the currently logged-in member.

Notes:

  • Currently, this function throws an error if a member isn't logged in. However, the frontend currentMember.getMember() resolves to undefined if a member isn't logged in. This function may change in the future to align with the frontend currentMember.getMember().
  • The APIs in CurrentMember are only partially functional when previewing your site. View a published version of your site to see their complete functionality.
  • This function replaces the deprecated wix-users-backend.currentUser. The deprecated object and its methods will continue to work, but they will not receive updates. To keep any existing code compatible with future changes, see the migration instructions.
