[React] Fetching user info within Redux


I’m using @okta/okta-react in my React app. I understand the use of the withAuth() higher-order component. With it, I can fetch the user via getUser() within my component. And I’ve verified it works just as expected.

However, what if I want to fetch the user within Redux? Specifically, I’m using Redux Saga to handle all my asynchronous API calls. Is there some way to call one of okta-react's library functions such as getUser() from a Saga?

The basic issue is, I don’t want to handle my async calls within my component, but rather elsewhere, and I don’t see a way with the library.

Only one way how to achieve it I found here: https://github.com/mabc224/node-okta-react-redux
