Constructor & Destructor Documentation

◆ __construct()

MediaWiki\Session\SessionInfo::__construct (   $priority,
array  $data 
int$prioritySession priority
  • provider: (SessionProvider|null) If not given, the provider will be determined from the saved session data.
  • id: (string|null) Session ID
  • userInfo: (UserInfo|null) User known from the request. If $provider->canChangeUser() is false, a verified user must be provided.
  • persisted: (bool) Whether this session was persisted
  • remembered: (bool) Whether the verified user was remembered. Defaults to true.
  • forceHTTPS: (bool) Whether to force HTTPS for this session
  • metadata: (array) Provider metadata, to be returned by Session::getProviderMetadata(). See SessionProvider::mergeMetadata() and SessionProvider::refreshSessionInfo().
  • idIsSafe: (bool) Set true if the 'id' did not come from the user. Generally you'll use this from SessionProvider::newEmptySession(), and not from any other method.
  • forceUse: (bool) Set true if the 'id' is from SessionProvider::hashToSessionId() to delete conflicting session store data instead of discarding this SessionInfo. Ignored unless both 'provider' and 'id' are given.
  • copyFrom: (SessionInfo) SessionInfo to copy other data items from.

Compare two SessionInfo objects by priority.

int Negative if $a < $b, positive if $a > $b, zero if equal

◆ forceHTTPS()

MediaWiki\Session\SessionInfo::forceHTTPS ( )

◆ forceUse()

MediaWiki\Session\SessionInfo::forceUse ( )

Force use of this SessionInfo if validation fails.

The normal behavior is to discard the SessionInfo if validation against the data stored in the session store fails. If this returns true, SessionManager will instead delete the session store data so this SessionInfo may still be used. This is important for providers which use deterministic IDs and so cannot just generate a random new one.

◆ isIdSafe()

MediaWiki\Session\SessionInfo::isIdSafe ( )

Indicate whether the ID is "safe".

The ID is safe in the following cases:

  • The ID was randomly generated by the constructor.
  • The ID was found in the backend data store.
  • $this->getProvider()->persistsSessionId() is false.
  • The constructor was explicitly told it's safe using the 'idIsSafe' parameter.

◆ wasPersisted()

MediaWiki\Session\SessionInfo::wasPersisted ( )

◆ wasRemembered()

MediaWiki\Session\SessionInfo::wasRemembered ( )

Return whether the user was remembered.

For providers that can persist the user separately from the session, the human using it may not actually want that to be done. For example, a cookie-based provider can set cookies that are longer-lived than the backend session data, but on a public terminal the human likely doesn't want those cookies set.

This is false unless a non-anonymous verified user was passed to the SessionInfo constructor by the provider, and the provider didn't pass false for the 'remembered' data item.
