Storing user data server-side in a session


#1

Enonic version: 7.0.1
OS: Win10

Hi,

I’m in the process of creating an enonic id provider geared towards OpenID Connect. After a user is authenticated I want to store the tokens somewhere to keep them available from any controller / app. Is this possible? It would be optimal if the token could be stored and tied to the session of the user somehow.

I saw an old discuss thread which is somewhat related "Global" or session object from a while back

Any recommendations for how to solve this?

Thanks

To store data about a user in a persistent way:
authLib.getProfile and authLib.modifyProfile

To store data in the session.
There is no library method for this but it is doable using Java.

Example: How to get the current request
