    Rest Extension in Umbraco 7.6 HttpContext.Current.User is returning umbraco user not current member?

    We're using Active Directory for membership and in a Rest Extension when calling HttpContext.Current.User it is returning the currently logged in umbraco user rather than the currently logged in member..

    I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this?

    in a razor view using @Membership.GetUser().UserName it returns the logged in member

    if I do this in code:

    public class InductionHelper
        [RestExtensionMethod(ReturnXml = false, AllowAll = true)]
        public static string RegisterPolicyAgreement()
            var memberName = Membership.GetUser().UserName;
            var someRandomVarName = ApplicationContext.Current.Services.MemberService.GetByUsername(memberName);

    Membership.GetUser() is querying based on the currently logged in umbraco admin user in our override of get user:

    public class CustomMembershipProvider : ActiveDirectoryMembershipProvider
        public override MembershipUser GetUser(string username, bool userIsOnline)
            if (!string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(username))
                var result = (MembershipUser)HttpContext.Current.Session[username];
                if (result == null)
                    result = base.GetUser(username, userIsOnline);
                    HttpContext.Current.Session[username] = result;
                    HttpContext.Current.Session["recentUser"] = username;
                return result;
                return null;
