User and sessions

When tracking a user is it correct to use the session user and id ?
In other words if a user logs in and wants to display all of their
records would one of the find conditions be session[id] ?

TIA

Hi Stuart.

If I’m not wrong, the session id is per session. That is, if the same
user comes 4 times in 4 days, you will have … 4 differents id. So the
session[id] culd not be used in your case.

But as you say the user logs in, you answer your own question. If it
logs in, you have a loggin or id of the record of the Users database’s
table, isn’t it ? And this id is available for each different user and
identifies each one unikly.
