When reading Agile Web Devlopment with Rails book, at the end of section

But how would you do such a thing?  When I look through the API docs, I
only see functions for enabling/disabling session management for certain
actions, nothing about explicitly triggering a new session to be

I am wondering the same thing as Jevan here but could not find any

I'd be grateful if anyone could provide a solution.
