Can i disable SessionState in PageControllerBase<T>


Hi Team,

As of now, I am not using any Sessions in my application so i am planning to disable SessionState in Base controller level to improve the performance. Below is code which i am doing.

public abstract class PageControllerBase<T> : PageController<T>
where T : SitePageData


So my question here is, If i disable session anything will break in CMS features? Is there any dependency with session across the CMS platform.

Hi Suresh

Since you are applying the attribute to an attribute that only your custom controllers inherit from, then Episerver CMS will not be affected. The editor platform will still be able to use Session State as needed.

But have you tried disabling session state completely (from web.config)? From version 11.9, CMS is smart enough to store visitor group data in cookie state, when session state is disabled (documentated here).

Hi Stefan,

Thanks for the update. It's clear for me now.
