Check session

Overview

The Check Session filter checks for the presence of a valid cookie-based HTTP session. This filter tries to locate a valid session based on the value of a specified cookie name. If the session is found, the filter retrieves the user and sets it in the authentication.subject.id attribute.

The Check Session filter should be used with the Create Session and End Session filters to manage HTTP sessions. For more details, see:
