    Getting the service

    Services property

    If you wish to use use the external login service in a class that inherits from one of the Umbraco base classes (eg. SurfaceController, UmbracoApiController or UmbracoAuthorizedApiController), you can access the external login service through a local Services property:

    IExternalLoginService externalLoginService = Services.ExternalLoginService;

    Dependency Injection

    In other cases, you may be able to use Dependency Injection. For instance if you have registered your own class in Umbraco's dependency injection, you can specify the IExternalLoginService interface in your constructor:

    public class MyClass
    	private IExternalLoginService _externalLoginService;
    	public MyClass(IExternalLoginService externalLoginService)
    		_externalLoginService = externalLoginService;

    Static accessor

    If neither a Services property or Dependency Injection is available, you can also reference the static Current class directly:

    IExternalLoginService externalLoginService = Umbraco.Core.Composing.Current.Services.ExternalLoginService;
