What is the use of the ownProps parameter in mapStateToProps() and mapDispatchToProps()?

If the ownProps parameter is specified, React Redux will pass the props that were passed to the component into your connect functions. So, if you use a connected component:

import ConnectedComponent from './containers/ConnectedComponent';
<ConnectedComponent user={'john'} />;

The ownProps inside your mapStateToProps() and mapDispatchToProps() functions will be an object:

{
user: 'john';
}

You can use this object to decide what to return from those functions.
