Hi
i am very new to MVC and currently i got a requirement that i have to remove session from all the pages, so i should not store anything in session and have to replace with other concept to achieve this because don't logout from application.

currently in session i am just keeping login details and Module allowed and retrieving from other pages.you can see the below code to understand clearly

LoginCredential SessLogin = new LoginCredential();
SessLogin.ModuleAllowed = new List();
SessLogin.RLPEmpId ="V0008293"
SessLogin.RLPEmpName = "Santosh"
SessLogin.RLPEmpLocation = "India"

Var tempTop = somedatatable;
SessLogin.ModuleAllowed = tempTop;
Session["SessLogin"] = SessLogin;= SessLogin

---below two class used to assign value below storing in session.
public class LoginCredential
{
public string RLPEmpId { get; set; }
public string RLPEmpName { get; set; }
public string RLPEmpLocation { get; set; }
public List SECModule>; ModuleAllowed { get; set; }
}

public class SECModule
{
[Key]
[DatabaseGeneratedAttribute(DatabaseGeneratedOption.Identity)]
public int ID { get; set; }
public int ParentID { get; set; }
public string ModuleName { get; set; }
}

hope you understood if not then let me know

I think your original implementation was not right thats why you were told to remove all things from session. As per your statement ".... concept to achieve this because don't logout from application. ".

So is the requirement that the user was getting logged our automatically after 20 minutes or so? If that is the case, you can increase the timeout value (I saw there is no timeout sepecified and default is 20 minutes only).
Session.Timeout = 120;

If that doesn't solve the problem, you can keep all your details into cookies, however this seems not reliable as some browser doesn't allow cookies or user disable them.

Thanks

You can't store an object in the cookies, however you can store each property of the object in different cookies. Read
