I'm working on a .NET Core project and I have added a custom column to the
ASPNetUsers table called

However in my Login partial, I have to access the user's data through
UserManager, and there's no method of getting that
DisplayName INSTEAD of the
What do I need to do to extend the function of the "normal" Identity manager to get the custom method to retrieve the text that's stored in
By getting the current user I can then access the
DisplayName property as a normal property of an object.
var currentUser = await _UserManager.GetUserAsync(User); var displayName = currentUser.DisplayName;
