ClaimIdentity not working on production, core 2.0

Hi Guys,

I can retrieve ClaimsIdentity in by .net  core 2.0 app in development mode but I cannot do so in production: My code:

            var identity = (ClaimsIdentity)User.Identity;
            IEnumerable<Claim> claims = identity.Claims;

            var claimType = "PID";
            var claim = identity.FindFirst(claimType);
            var pgl = claim == null ? string.Empty : claim.Value;

Open in new window

Not sure what the reason might be but I found a link in stackoverflow but the solution is unclear:

Could someone please kndly help me?

Hi Guys,

The answer to my problem was that I needed to change the Identity type on my IIS Server Application Pool to LocalSystem instead of ApplicationPoolIndentity
