At least if it is added, I cannot return it to a view.
I'm trying to return a User FullName to the ever popular _LoginPartial.cshtml and having difficuties.
I can however return the built-in properties like so:
@using Microsoft.AspNet.Identity

        var identity = (System.Security.Claims.ClaimsPrincipal)System.Threading.Thread.CurrentPrincipal;
        var claims = identity.Claims;
      
         <ul>
            @foreach (var c in claims)
            {                
                <li>@c</li>
            }
        </ul>

Open in new window


I'm trying to add a new Claim at Login like so:
     var user = await UserManager.FindAsync(model.Email, model.Password);

    ... case SignInStatus.Success:

     var identity = new ClaimsIdentity(new[] { new Claim(ClaimTypes.GivenName, user.FullName)});
     identity.AddClaim(new Claim(ClaimTypes.GivenName, user.FullName));

   ... return RedirectToLocal(returnUrl);

I don't understand what you are having a problem with.  Does the identity.Claims list not show the FullName claim?

Well, ahh, the code was changed and there's no backup to looked at. Seems we're using a Session now like so, which works very well...

[_LoginPartial]
@Html.ActionLink("Hello " + @Session["UserDisplayName"] + "!", "Index", "Manage", routeValues: null, htmlAttributes: new { title = "Manage" })

[AccountController -> Login]
   case SignInStatus.Success:
                    //NEW
                    var user = await UserManager.FindAsync(model.Email, model.Password);
                    string[] fullName = user.FullName.Split(' ');
                    Session["UserDisplayName"] = fullName[0];
                    //END
                    return RedirectToLocal(returnUrl);
    case...
