Till drop 6 i was able to get user properties using Rest call method as below.

public getUserProperties(): Promise { return this.context.httpClient.get( ${this.context.pageContext.web.absoluteUrl}/_api/SP.UserProfiles.PeopleManager/GetMyProperties) .then((response: Response) => { return response.json(); }); }

now with new Release RC0, this.context.httpClient.get method is asking for one Extra Parameter which is called configuration of Type "HttpClientConfiguration". here i found the method defintion on web. I am not sure what paramter need to pass for this, as description it said "normally this should be the latest version number from HttpClientConfigurations". i would like to know what is the latest version of HttpClientConfigurations.Thanks in Advance.

Lots of breaking changes introduced in RCO:

Use it as below:

import {
} from '@microsoft/sp-http'

private _getListData(): Promise<ISPLists> {
  return this.context.spHttpClient.get(this.context.pageContext.web.absoluteUrl + '/_api/SP.UserProfiles.PeopleManager/GetMyProperties', SPHttpClient.configurations.v1)
    .then((response: Response) => {
      return response.json();
  • Does this imply that SPFx's spHttpClient does not return a JSON structure by default?? Commented Jan 13, 2017 at 8:19
  • No, JSON is the default, as is ODataV4, etc. Those configurations are all captured in the V1 configuration. The full V1 configuration is * consoleLogging = true; * jsonRequest = true; * jsonResponse = true; * defaultSameOriginCredentials = true; * defaultODataVersion = ODataVersion.v4; * requestDigest = true The goal with the configuration is to be able to change defaults without breaking existing code, by combining those defaults into configurations.

  • my this.context.spHttpClient is undefined Commented Nov 5, 2019 at 16:42
