Hi I'm using azure active directory for my WebApp, the user id is GUID given automatically by azure active directory, so im having problems with this code:

public long? UserId { get { var userId = Thread.CurrentPrincipal.Identity.GetUserId(); if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(userId)) { return null; }

            return Convert.ToInt64(userId);

Exception Details: System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.

What can i do ?

    ABP assumes UserId as long. This is one of a few restrictions and it has many benefits to assume that while developing the framework (I answered this before in more detail before in forum and Github issues). I'm sorry for your situation. You may build some workaround, like handling request, mapping guid->long and replacing in CurrentPrincipal. If you can find a better way, please share with us. Thank you.
