Get current user details with Shopify bridge or EASDK?

Is it possible to get the current user details (email, full name) with either Shopify Bridge or the EASDK?

 

The EASDK has a https://help.shopify.com/en/api/embedded-apps/embedded-app-sdk/methods#shopifyapp-user-current method but it only shows the accountAccess so I think the answer is no.

 

How about Shopify Bridge?

I find the documentation extremely light.

Hey @ClementBR,

 

The only 'current user' information available is accountAccess. The shop endpoint might be of interest - it will have the store owner's name and email, but no 'current user' information.

I'm aware of the shop's endpoint but it's not what we want.

We need the details of the current user, not the owner.

It's critical so that we can understand which user performed which actions, in particular for security features and to keep a log of activities performed by each user.

It seems like a pretty big oversight of the API.

I also note that the POS SDK has had the feature since the beginning.

Why is it not available in Shopify Bridge?

Would just like to add another vote for this functionality! For an embedded app, it is definitely a user using it, and for being able to report on who made a change inside the app getting the user's identity is super important! Please let us access it!

+1 on this. This is EXACTLY what I'm looking for and what I'm hoping to achieve.
