I'm creating my first WebAPI project, and have hit my first snag. It seems that because the WebAPI model is stateless, I have no Session available to me. So, my attempt to add a session variable when logging in, has failed.
public static void CreateSession(int userId, string firstName, string surname, int timezoneOffset, string timezoneName)
// Create the object.
var session = new SessionToken
FirstName = firstName,
Surname = surname,
TimezoneName = timezoneName,
TimezoneOffset = timezoneOffset,
UserID = userId
// Is there an existing session?
var existing = HttpContext.Current.Session[SESSIONNAME];
// If so, we need to kill it and refresh it. Not sure why we would have this case though.
if (existing != null)
// Create the session.
