Access the firebaseUser ‘created’ timestamp from within javascript

I’m wanting to read the ‘Created’ timestamp (that is available in the Authentication > USERS section of the Firebase console) directly from the firebaseUser object within the run function of my Angular app using AngularFire.

e.g

FirebaseAuth.$onAuthStateChanged(function(firebaseUser) {
    console.log(firebaseUser.created)
}

Is a timestamp present anywhere on the object? I’m trying to avoid invoking the database at this point.

Thanks for your help.

Answer

You can add creation date in your database when creating a new account:

Users
  useruid <-- from the console
     name: userx
     email: [email protected]
     creationdate: 2018-02-10
  useruid
     name: usery
     email: [email protected] 
     creationdate: 2018-03-01

Also check this:

https://firebase.google.com/docs/reference/js/firebase.User

Or retrieve it using metadata as stated here:

creationTime:

The date the user was created, formatted as a UTC string. For example, ‘Fri, 22 Sep 2017 01:49:58 GMT’.

Or using the Admin SDK:

admin.auth().getUser(uid).then(function(userRecord) {
console.log("Creation time:", userRecord.metadata.creationTime);
});
