Structs

firebase::auth::User::UserProfile

Parameters to the UpdateUserProfile() function.

Public functions

Delete

Future< void > Delete()

Deletes the user account.

DeleteLastResult

Future< void > DeleteLastResult() const 

Get results of the most recent call to Delete.

GetToken

Future< std::string > GetToken(
  bool force_refresh
)

The Java Web Token (JWT) that can be used to identify the user to the backend.

If a current ID token is still believed to be valid (i.e. it has not yet expired), that token will be returned immediately. A developer may set the optional force_refresh flag to get a new ID token, whether or not the existing token has expired. For example, a developer may use this when they have discovered that the token is invalid for some other reason.

GetTokenLastResult

Future< std::string > GetTokenLastResult() const 

Get results of the most recent call to GetToken.

LinkAndRetrieveDataWithCredential

Future< SignInResult > LinkAndRetrieveDataWithCredential(
  const Credential & credential
)

Links the user with the given 3rd party credentials.

For example, a Facebook login access token, a Twitter token/token-secret pair. Status will be an error if the token is invalid, expired, or otherwise not accepted by the server as well as if the given 3rd party user id is already linked with another user account or if the current user is already linked with another id from the same provider.

Data from the Identity Provider used to sign-in is returned in the AdditionalUserInfo inside SignInResult.

LinkAndRetrieveDataWithCredentialLastResult

Future< SignInResult > LinkAndRetrieveDataWithCredentialLastResult() const 

Get results of the most recent call to LinkAndRetrieveDataWithCredential.

LinkWithCredential

Future< User * > LinkWithCredential(
  const Credential & credential
)

Convenience function for ReauthenticateAndRetrieveData that discards the returned AdditionalUserInfo in SignInResult.

LinkWithCredentialLastResult

Future< User * > LinkWithCredentialLastResult() const 

Get results of the most recent call to LinkWithCredential.

Reauthenticate

Future< void > Reauthenticate(
  const Credential & credential
)

Convenience function for ReauthenticateAndRetrieveData that discards the returned AdditionalUserInfo data.

ReauthenticateAndRetrieveData

Future< SignInResult > ReauthenticateAndRetrieveData(
  const Credential & credential
)

Reauthenticate using a credential.

Some APIs (for example, UpdatePassword, Delete) require that the token used to invoke them be from a recent login attempt. This API takes an existing credential for the user and retrieves fresh tokens, ensuring that the operation can proceed. Developers can call this method prior to calling UpdatePassword() to ensure success.

Data from the Identity Provider used to sign-in is returned in the AdditionalUserInfo inside the returned SignInResult.

Returns an error if the existing credential is not for this user or if sign-in with that credential failed. The user should remain signed in even if this method failed. If the developer had held a reference to that user, the reference will continue to be valid after this operation.

ReauthenticateAndRetrieveDataLastResult

Future< SignInResult > ReauthenticateAndRetrieveDataLastResult() const 

Get results of the most recent call to ReauthenticateAndRetrieveData.

ReauthenticateLastResult

Future< void > ReauthenticateLastResult() const 

Get results of the most recent call to Reauthenticate.

Reload

Future< void > Reload()

Refreshes the data for this user.

For example, the attached providers, email address, display name, etc.

ReloadLastResult

Future< void > ReloadLastResult() const 

Get results of the most recent call to Reload.

SendEmailVerification

Future< void > SendEmailVerification()

Initiates email verification for the user.

SendEmailVerificationLastResult

Future< void > SendEmailVerificationLastResult() const 

Get results of the most recent call to SendEmailVerification.

Unlink

Future< User * > Unlink(
  const char *provider
)

Unlinks the current user from the provider specified.

Status will be an error if the user is not linked to the given provider.

UnlinkLastResult

Future< User * > UnlinkLastResult() const 

Get results of the most recent call to Unlink.

UpdateEmail

Future< void > UpdateEmail(
  const char *email
)

Sets the email address for the user.

May fail if there is already an email/password-based account for the same email address.

UpdateEmailLastResult

Future< void > UpdateEmailLastResult() const 

Get results of the most recent call to UpdateEmail.

UpdatePassword

Future< void > UpdatePassword(
  const char *password
)

Attempts to change the password for the current user.

For an account linked to an Identity Provider (IDP) with no password, this will result in the account becoming an email/password-based account while maintaining the IDP link. May fail if the password is invalid, if there is a conflicting email/password-based account, or if the token has expired. To retrieve fresh tokens, call Reauthenticate.

UpdatePasswordLastResult

Future< void > UpdatePasswordLastResult() const 

Get results of the most recent call to UpdatePassword.

UpdatePhoneNumberCredential

Future< User * > UpdatePhoneNumberCredential(
  const Credential & credential
)

Updates the currently linked phone number on the user.

This is useful when a user wants to change their phone number. It is a shortcut to calling Unlink(phone_credential.provider().c_str()) and then LinkWithCredential(phone_credential). credential must have been created with PhoneAuthProvider.

Get results of the most recent call to UpdatePhoneNumberCredential.

Gets the provider ID for the user (For example, "Facebook").

uid

virtual std::string uid() const 

Gets the unique Firebase user ID for the user.

Note:The user's ID, unique to the Firebase project. Do NOT use this value to authenticate with your backend server, if you have one. Use User::GetToken() instead.
