How to access ctx.state.user in Middleware?

Is there no option to access request user in middleware level to make some checks? I have tried global and api level middlewares but in both cases there is no ctx :man_shrugging:

Hey fellow LOL player, you can indeed acces the user from middlewares.
I do it in the following manner:
const { user } = context.state;

Thank you

"use strict";

module.exports = (config, { strapi }) => {
  return async (ctx, next) => {
    const { user } = ctx.state;

    console.log("ctx.state:", ctx.state);

    await next();

Thanks for the answer <@748491524249092096> . Also, you can use the strapi.requestContext.get() to get the request context as long as the middleware is called in the context of an HTTP request.

const ctx = strapi.requestContext.get();
