currentUser values within UI5 lifecycle functions


I have two question relating to the currentUser(/services/userapi/currentUser)

  • Except for name and displayName, rest of the fields are blank. Where could be the issue? I need other fields such as email, firstName, lastName, etc.
  • I want to filter the table data with the logged in user but although it shows the value on the UI control, it is empty within the lifecycle funtions(onInit, onBeforeRendering, onAfterRendering ) of the view. How can i get the values within these lifecylce funtions?

Thanks in advance!

{"name":"P057284","firstName":"Maksim","lastName":"Rashchynski","displayName":"Maksim Rashchynski (P057284)","email":""}


place in Components init

var oModel = new sap.ui.model.json.JSONModel();

oModel.attachEvent("requestCompleted", function() {



}, this);


this.setModel(oModel, "userInfo");

so in controllers you can access it like
