I found you can get the current user id like this:

import id from '@salesforce/user/Id';

I have a really simple component where all I need are the User Id and the current Org Id. I haven't been able to find any documentation on any simple way to get the Org Id without having to go to Apex. Is this possible? It would be quite unfortunate if you really have to create an apex class and a method just to get the current org id...

    I guess $Organization global variable only works in Visualforce and not in lightning. In lightning, you need to create an apex controller and fetch the org id in the controller. String orgId = UserInfo.getOrganizationId(); Commented Oct 20, 2022 at 20:23
  • Oh no, this cannot still be the way to do it... -.-

You have to create an apex class and a method just to get the current org id. An example:


public with sharing class UserUtility {

    public static String getOrganizationId() {
        return UserInfo.getOrganizationId();


import { LightningElement, wire } from 'lwc'; 
import getOrganizationId from '@salesforce/apex/UserUtility.getOrganizationId';

export default class GetOrganizationId extends LightningElement {

  • @identigral "What you're asking for cannot be done" is a valid answer.

    @DerekF Considering that a comment of the same nature has been made in 2022, the answer might be valid but it's not useful. A useful answer would show the few required lines of Apex + JS.
