I have a problem with the Session ID in my Rails application. I need to
store some data of anonymous users and then, when the session expires,
delete that information from de database.
I have a filter in some point of my application when I try to create an
anonymous user which I want to identify by its session_id. I read that
this session_id must be a 32 char length value, but, when I run the
application my session_id value is:
The code is:
self.current_user = User.new(:login => “guest” +
:password => “guest”, :confirm_password => “guest”, :session_id
And when the session expires, I am using the session_lifetime plugin to
make some stuff like deleting the user from the database.
expires_session :time => 5.minutes, :redirect_to => ‘/’, :on_expiry =>
user = User.find_by_session_id(session.session_id)
User.delete(user.id) unless user.nil?
At this point, the session_id is a 32 char length value, as expected.
What is wrong with the session at the first point? I am lost.
