User profile service in SharePoint 2013


Welcome to a new tip of User profile Service in SharePoint 2013. Today, I will be showing you a beautiful way to get Current logged in User’s details on a page using JavaScript.

So let’s do it:

  • Create a new Page
  • Add a Content Editor web part
  • Place the below code in it.


-----The following HTML code is used to display the Current logged in User name on a Content Editor Web Part.
Name- <span id="username"></span><br/>

---- The following code calls the sp service and append the HTML code replacing by the value.

<script type="text/javascript"> 
  var thisUserAccount ;         
    $(document).ready(function() {
    thisUserAccount= $().SPServices.SPGetCurrentUser({
    fieldNames: ["Title","Department","Email"],
    debug: false
var nametag="<span id=\"username\">"+thisUserAccount.Title+"</span>";
    ); </script>

This is the result on the Home page:

As you can see, the name comes up on the page load of the site. In a similar way, you can have the following attributes like Department, Email, etc. to your page.

Account Name
Name Title
Work e-mail Email
About me Notes
Picture Picture
Department Department
Job Title JobTitle
SIP Address SipAddress
First name FirstName
Last Name LastName
Work phone WorkPhone
Office Office
User name UserName
Web site WebSite
Responsibilities SPResponsibility

You just have to make a change like:

  • thisUserAccount.Title
  • thisUserAccount.Email
  • thisUserAccount.Department

in the code and hence the purpose will be served.

Till then, keep learning.
