Setting Session variables at the time of login authentication

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 11, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Windows Application

Dear Rahul,

I am having a website in which I am setting nearly 20 Session variables at the time of login authentication. ( Ex : Name, EmpID, Dept, Location, Email...).

Can u please tell which is one of the following is the better way to get Login user details 

 1) Through session variables at the time of login 

 2) In each and every page by calling the Stored Procedure to get login user details

Session time out alert box and redirect login page


Dear all,

Now I am using Form authentication for my website. 

It is something like that below. But if I left the website without using it for quite some time and when I used it back, it is redirected to the login page. 

The one I want to know is that it is because of session expire or cookies expire. And if it is session expired, I want to show the alert box and redirect to the login page. And one more thing is that if the user keeps on using the website, I want to extend the session expire time. If you do not mind, I want to have some references for this scenario. Thank you so much.

ASP.NET session variables, do you need to save each time?


Anytime you change the object variable that is already assigned to a session variable, do you need to "re-save" the variable back into the session variable or does it do it automatically?

For example:

// abc is an object of some random type

Session["abc"] = abc;  // initial declaration of session variable.

abc.a=1;  // updated abc.a field after a button_click event

Session["abc"] = abc;   // resave the new field value of 'a' back into the session variable 'abc'.

Or does the session variable already keep track of all changes made to the object and saves automatically?

Forms based users being prompted for windows authentication login for My Sites photos in user lists

Here's an issue I didn't see coming for our forms based authentication users. 

We have a web application extended to an external url to handle forms based authentication for users outside of our domain. Our setup looks like this...

Internal Users/Windows Authentication - moss.domain.com
External Users/Forms Based - mossext.domain.com
My Site for Internal Users - mysites.domain.com

When our forms based users are accessing user lists, or discussion pages that display user pictures, they are getting a windows authentication login for our internal users (mysites.domain.com) who have populated their my site with personal photo.

How do we fix this? 

Session login sharepoint


Hi all,

Anybody knows how we can create a custom session when user login to sharepoint site (intranet)?

When a user login, I want to show some disclaimer where the user can choose yes or no.

If yes, it will create 1 session to make the disclaimer box only showed up once for every login.

Can I achieve this without using custom control?

Thank you all

Best regards,

Could anyone pleas help me out with this one?

Defining session variables...



This is a pretty basic question.

I have some code where I need to define a session variable  however it's coming back as Nothing when the code is executed. Here's the code:

' Default Currency

REQCURR = Request.Querystring("p_DCURR")
'If not explicitly specified, try to get it from session

If (REQCURR = "") Then

     If (Session("REQCURR") <> "") Then
          REQCURR = Session("REQCURR")

          'Here is the session variable I'm trying to define:
          Session("REQCAD") = 0
          REQCURR = ""
     End If

End If


So, for some reason that Session("REQCAD") = 0 has no value instead of having a value of 0.

Any thoughts?

Multiple Windows Authentication options on login after Web App restore

Hi I have a question regarding SharePoint Foundation 2010 and backup / restore jobs... I'm doing nightly farm backups using PowerShell: Add-PsSnapin Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell Set-location $home Backup-SPFarm -Directory \\same-server\***** -BackupMethod Differential This morning I decided to try and restore a single web application, just to make sure it works. In Central Administration I selected the latest farm backup and then selected the node for the Web Application and choose restore (using option: Same configuration) because it's the same server. Restore process went fine, no failure messages, and I can see that it has restored the content I deleted for testing. BUT when I enter the site. I'm presented with a Login page (that you would see if you have also configured Forms Authentication for the same zone, which I have not) and the drop down box show two options: "Windows Authentication" and "Windows Authentication". Both let me use windows credentials to login so basically the login page is pointless and it wasn't there before. I should note: The Web Application was and is configured to use Claims Based Authentication and for Windows Authentication: Kerberos. Nothing for forms. Default sign in page. And I was never presented with this redundant login page before the restore. Anyone knows why this could be happening and how to solve it?? Than
