    Accessing Umbraco services in startup class.


    Can anyone let me know on how to access Umbraco services like logger service , member service, user service in start up class file. I want to assign a different role based on the claims I receive from external identity like Azure active directory.

    public partial class Startup
    public void ConfigureAuth(IAppBuilder app)
                new ExternalSignInAutoLinkOptions(autoLinkExternalAccount: true, defaultUserGroups: null, defaultCulture: null)
                    OnAutoLinking = (user, externalLogin) => {
                    ,OnExternalLogin = (user, externalLogin) => {
                        return true;

    Hi Nagarjuna,

    You can consume services like this

    Example Userservice

    var userService = Umbraco.Core.Composing.Current.Services.UserService;

    Regards Dhanesh :)

    I have the same question. How do we access services in Umbraco 9 during ConfigureServices? Specifically, when the OnExternalLogin action is run, I would like to be able to modify a user by accessing the IBackOfficeUserManager.

    I've tried getting the service using an IServiceProvider like so

        var provider = services.BuildServiceProvider();
        _userManager = provider.GetService<IBackOfficeUserManager>();

    But I seem to get errors that

    Register called when MainDom has not been acquired

    Umbraco.Core.Composing doesn't exist in Umbraco 9, and doesn't seem like a very .Net 5 way of doing things anyway.

    Any ideas?
