    Updating member through clientside calls to API

    I'm trying to make a service call from clientside to my api, which should update the currently logged in member.

    The problem is, that after updating the members name, email and username, I cannot fetch the current member by using the Membership helper. 

    So when i try to use the membershipHelper.GetCurrentMember() after updating the member, it returns null.

    I tried updating the member in several different way, to see if that would help, but with no luck.


    using Umbraco.Core.Models;

    IMember member = ApplicationContext.Services.MemberService.GetById(_memberHelper.GetCurrentMember().Id);
    member.Username = currentMember.Email;
    member.Email = currentMember.Email;
    member.Name = currentMember.Email;


    Using deprecated  umbraco.cms.businesslogic.member;

    Member member = Member.GetCurrentMember();
    member.LoginName = currentMember.Email;
    member.Text = currentMember.Email;
    member.Email = currentMember.Email;

    Updating profilemodel

    var profileModel = _memberHelper.GetCurrentMemberProfileModel();
    profileModel.Name = currentMember.Email;
    profileModel.Email = currentMember.Email;
    profileModel.UserName = currentMember.Email;


    So these result in the currentmember, when trying to fetch the currentMember in another servicecall after updating the member successfully.

    I've searched for a solution for hours. Any help is much appreciated :)

    I would recommend logout after grabbing the object.

    Update with info

    prompt user to login again using new username etc.
