core api User.Identity.Name null/empty

I have a Blazor WASM application.
I am getting the id token and putting it in the header for a http api call to aws apigateway v2 http api.
In a controller method, I am spilling info to the log.

The token looks like this
“given_name”: “XXX”,
“family_name”: “XXX”,
“nickname”: “XXX”,
“name”: “XXXX”,
“picture”: “”,
“locale”: “en”,
“updated_at”: “2021-04-18T20:56:16.040Z”,
“iss”: “”,
“sub”: "google-oauth2|987987987987,
“aud”: “XXXXXX”,
“iat”: 1618784322,
“exp”: 1618820322

In the lambda function backing the http api, all of the claims are there…

In the controller I am logging as below:


But the “User.Identity.Name” is empty/null.


Oh, I forgot to mention, the @context.User.Identity.Name works fine on the client side…(WASM)

Hey there!

I’m not a Blazor expert unfortunately but have you tried taking a look at one of our Blazor-related articles?

I don’t think it has much to do with Blazor (yes, I know I mentioned it, sorry to confuse the issue).

This is in a pretty pure ASP.NET Core Web API that is happening. In the blazor wasm, the context.User.Identity.Name is working from the same token.
