Session, FormsAuthenticationTicket, Store Data About The User?

Feb 1, 2011

I'm am building an web application that needs to be able to scale.We want to store, an connection string, an object that says what organization the user is working on right now and the identity of the user.

We could serialize down this and send through the userdata property in the FormsAuthenticationTicket, but that feels to not be the optimal solution, cause its is 4-5 strings of data that is unncessesary, but the main issue is that we are sending an encrypted connectionstring to the user which we dosent want to.

So what are our options?Can ASP.NET Cache be our solution?, can we couple the expiration of the cache and the formsauthenticationcookie?

C# - How To Store Additional User Data Using MembershipProvider/FormsAuthenticationTicket

Aug 2, 2010

I have implemented my own custom MembershipProvider with a custom data store. No problems so far. I would like for people to login using their email instead of a username. Because I have my own data store, this is not a major issue, I can just pass the email as the username for the MembershipProvider.

My question is, how do I store additional custom user data along in the FormsAuthenticationTicket? I want to store a couple of things that will never change, such as their UserId, First/Last Name and Country. I started looking into creating FormsAuthenticationTicket with the UserData, but quickly got confused. How do I store multiple things into this UserData, and how do I easily read this data back on every single ASP.NET MVC2 page. I found many samples, none that really seemed that great in terms of MVC2. There has to be a simple way to do this.

It would make no sense to read the UserId, First/Last Name and the Country from a database on each and every request because it would never change. Plus, while I want the user to login using their email, I'd want to store their UserId in the auth cookie so that it can be used in nearly every user related database query rather than the email (because in all the tables, the user data is stored along with the UserId - not the email because technically the email could be changed - I already figured that stuff out when it comes to the MembershipProvider).

What is the best practices for storing additional user data like this in ASP.NET MVC2?

Store Form Data In Tables For User Session?

Jan 5, 2010

I am using Visual Studio 2008.

I created a New Project ASP.NET Web Application.

I created a Textbox named VisitorName. The visitor puts in their name and it goes in VisitorName.Text

There is a Label that says "Which do you own?"

There is a RadioButtonList. It has Cat, Dog and None.

There is a button that says Add to list.

The button needs to add the results of the above items and put them in the list.

Now you keep adding people and their pets.

Once there are all entered you press send and I get the results for everyone entered during that session via email.

I have no database access and the information does not need to be stored in such a way.

I would like to use a datatable or datalist or something to that sort.

Oh and I would like the visitor to be able to click on a name in the table and edit the data using the form controls not in the datalist or datatable itself.

How To Store User ID In Session

Feb 15, 2011

When the user logs in, I want to store his userID in the session with

HttpContext.Current.Session["UserID"] = 2354; (this is just a hard-coded example)

Then, when I run a page method, if I do

var test = HttpContext.Current.Session["UserID"];

will the variable test hold the value I stored when he logged in?

If this is a correct way of doing it, how do I access the session when I receive a call from a page method? I want to put the test =... line in a page method to identify which user the request is coming from.

Security :: How To Automatically Send User To Login Page When FormsAuthenticationTicket Expires

I'm using Forms authentication in my application but I'm not using the Membership that's built into .NET.

How do I automatically send user to login page when his/her FormsAuthenticationTicket expires? I just don't want a user log in and leave a page on their computer screen long after their session has expired. I'd like to make sure that as soon as the user's
FormsAuthenticationTicket has expired, I send them to login page.

Master Pages - Where's The Best Place To Store Custom "User" Object For The Duration Of Session

Jul 6, 2010

I have an ASP.NET application that needs to remember some info about a user (and what company they are from) across pages, within a session. I imagine this is a requirement of just about any ASP.NET application of a certain size. I've used a few different approaches over the years. In the past, I've passed around an id in querystring parameters like so: [URL] and then instantiated the object on each page (from the database). Another common way of doing it is storing my objects in session variables:

Session["User"] = currentUser; // store at login
User currentUser = (User)Session["User"]; // retrieve on some other page

which saves a trip to the DB, but I worry about memory used if the User object is complex and the site has many concurrent users. I have recently inherited an application that uses public properties on the master page, like this:

Master.theUser = currentUser; // store at login
User currentUser = Master.theUser; // retrieve on some other page

This saves the cast, and looks more readable to me I think, but I don't know if it's better or worse performance-wise. It also has some logic in the getter where if the private value is null, it tries to get it from the Session variable, though I'm not sure if that's never used (or used every get!?) or what. My latest idea is to use my page class. I have a custom page class derived from the standard System.Web.UI.Page base class. It includes objects like CurrentUser as public properties. This seems to work OK. I like it even better. But I really don't know what's going on under the covers. Can anyone give an opinion on which approach is better and why?

Update: I've done some checking use trace.axd and Trace.Write and it looks like neither the masterpage version nor the custom page class version "remember" the values between pages. The "get" methods have a line of code that checks if the User property is null, and if so, reads it from the session variable. This happens when a page accesses the property (Master.User or the derived class's this.User) for the first time on a given page, then subsequent requests can get the value (without going to the session variable). So thus far the best solution looks something like this:

public class MyPage : System.Web.UI.Page
private User user;
public User User
if (user == null)
user = (User)HttpContext.Current.Session["CurrentUser"]; //check if session[CurrentUser] is null here and log them out if so?
return user;
user = value;
HttpContext.Current.Session["CurrentUser"] = value;

Then on any webpage.aspx.cs, you can do something like this: UsernameTextBox.Text = User.FullName;

C# - Store Class Properties In Session And Use Of Session Handler - Is It Good Design

Jul 27, 2010

I have a class called EditMapUtilities. Here are some class properties that I want to persist:

public class EditMapUtlities
public static Boolean isInitialEditMapPageLoad
get { return SessionHandler.isInitialEditMapPageLoad; }
set { SessionHandler.isInitialEditMapPageLoad = value; }

Here is my SessionHandler Class following the pattern from this post Static Session Class and Multiple Users:
using System.Web.SessionState;

public static class SessionHandler
private static HttpSessionState currentSession
if (HttpContext.Current.Session == null)
throw new Exception("Session is not available in the current context.");
return HttpContext.Current.Session;
//A boolean type session variable
private static string _isInitialEditMapPageLoad = "EditMapInitialPageLoad";
public static bool isInitialEditMapPageLoad
if (currentSession[_isInitialEditMapPageLoad] == null)
return true;
return (Boolean)currentSession[_isInitialEditMapPageLoad];
currentSession[_isInitialEditMapPageLoad] = value;

I am still learning OOAD. I want to keep relevant properties with relevant classes. I also want to keep all Session stored variables in one place for ease of maintenance and to encapsulate the session keys and calls. I feel like my design is too coupled though. How can I make it more loosely coupled? Is my editMapUtilities class too tightly coupled to the SessionHandler class? How would you do it better?

Where To Store And Set User Site Wide Data In MVC

Feb 16, 2010

I have an application in which a user can choose from different (learning)groups. User has only access to registered groups. When the user enters the site, he can choose (in a dropdown) which group he wants to see, so the complete site filters content related to that group. So every controller needs to access this global "group" object.What is the best way to do this in ASP.NET MVC? I've thought about a BaseController or ActionFilters. Is there any other best practice?I've build a WebForms application and there I used a BasePage so that any other page has access to the group.

Using SQL Membership Provider - Store Own Per - User Data?

Mar 27, 2010

I'm using the ASP.NET SQL Membership Provider. So, there's an aspnet_Users table that has details of each of my users. (Actually, the aspnet_Membership table seems to contain most of the actual data). I now want to store some per-user information in my database, so I thought I'd just create a new table with a UserId (GUID) column and an FK relationship to aspnet_Users. However, I then discovered that I can't easily get access to the UserId since it's not exposed via the membership API. (I know I can access it via the ProviderUserKey, but it seems like the API is abstracting away the internal UserID in favor of the UserName, and I don't want to go too far against the grain).

So, I thought I should instead put a LoweredUserName column in my table, and create an FK relationship to aspnet_Users using that. Bzzzt. Wrong again, because while there is a unique index in aspnet_Users that includes the LoweredUserName, it also includes the ApplicationId - so in order to create my FK relationship, I'd need to have an ApplicationId column in my table too. At first I thought: fine, I'm only dealing with a single application, so I'll just add such a column and give it a default value. Then I realised that the ApplicationId is a GUID, so it'd be a pain to do this. Not hard exactly, but until I roll out my DB I can't predict what the GUID is going to be. I feel like I'm missing something, or going about things the wrong way. What am I supposed to do?

However, after submission, the SelectedIndex is always 0, no matter what option is selected.
