MemberService

    The MemberService acts as a "gateway" to Umbraco data for operations which are related to Members.

    Browse the API documentation for MemberService.

    Getting the service

    Services property

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

    IMemberService memberService = Services.MemberService;
    

    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 IMemberService interface in your constructor:

    public class MyClass
    {
    
        private IMemberService _memberService;
        
        public MyClass(IMemberService memberService)
        {
            _memberService = memberService;
        }
    
    }
    

    Static accessor

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

    IMemberService memberService = Umbraco.Core.Composing.Current.Services.MemberService;
