FE sessions (cookies) should only be created when needed
Currently on every request, if not already present, a FE-session-cookie is set for the user. Imho this could/should be avoided until needed - for example until data is written into the session.
(PS: If there are arguments against this as a general solution, maybe it could at least be configurable.)
Steffen Müller agreed but suggested to first write some testcases and refactor the code in question.
- Tracker changed from Bug to Feature
- Category set to Frontend
- Status changed from New to Accepted
- Complexity set to hard
There are already some ways to work around it (see EXT:moc_varnish) but there should be a way to configure this in the core.
- Target version set to 7.2 (Frontend)
- Status changed from Accepted to Resolved
It is possible since 6.2 (?) to have no FE cookies set.
Yes resolved in 6.2 (or so). This issue dates back to stone-age (well, event 4.5) :-) Thanks for finding/closing.
- Status changed from Resolved to Closed
