Pretty simple:

npm run build

This will compile your JavaScript in to build/static/js/main.{buildnumbers}.js


After building, grab the compiled javascript files and place it on your page. You can now place <user-profile-menu> anywhere on your page.

Here's the guts of that html file:

  <div slot="header">User Profile</div>
    <div class="list-group list-group-flush">
        class="list-group-item list-group-item-action d-flex justify-content-between"
        >Manage Account <i class="fa fa-user"></i
        class="list-group-item list-group-item-action d-flex justify-content-between"
        >Another link <i class="fa fa-cog"></i
        class="list-group-item list-group-item-action d-flex justify-content-between"
        >Chat <i class="fa fa-comments"></i
  <div slot="footer">
    <a href="/uPortal/logout">Sign Out</a>
  • Note: The component includes bootstrap, so that you can use bootstrap's styles in your content slots. However, font-awesome has issues crossing the shadow-dom boundry, so that if you include an icon in the content slot, you also need to include a <link> to the font-awesome stylesheet from uPortal (or elsewhere if you wish).

We have a /proxy/ leading the oidc-url attribute. This is a developer convenience to be able to query against your local running instance of uPortal. The proxy is configured in package.json:

  "proxy": {
    "/proxy": {
      "target": "http://localhost:8080",
      "changeOrigin": true,
      "pathRewrite": {
        "^/proxy": "/"


<user-profile-menu> takes the following attributes:


Url to connect to oidc. The default for this value is /uPortal/api/v5-1/userinfo.

<user-profile-menu oidc-url="/uPortal/api/v5-1/userinfo"></user-profile-menu>


Tells the component to ignore the user's image and use the initials from first_name and given_name.

<user-profile-menu use-initials="true"></user-profile-menu>


Currently this component supports CSS Variables for overriding button colors. Defining the following variables will change the colors for the component accordingly. They will fall back to the colors described below.

You should define this in your custom stylesheet.

fg = foreground (text) bg = background

:root {
  --user-prof-avatar-size: 30px; // size of avatar in navbar
  --user-prof-menu-fg-color: #495057;
  --user-prof-fg-color: #ffffff; // color of user name text
  --user-prof-fallback-bg-color: #cccccc; // color of fallback/initial background
  --user-prof-fallback-fg-color: #333333; // color of fallback/initial text
  --user-prof-header-bg-color: #eee; // color used by headers/footers
  --user-prof-header-fg-color: #000; // color used by headers/footers
