Globbal.asax.cs and its
Session_Start event. The original answer to this question is here. But, as I prefer
overengineering modular architecture and Sitecore Helix principles I wanted to make it extensible without touching this Foundation piece of code. As you probably know we have
Startup.cs instead of
DistributedSessionStore. To extend the Create method of the
DistributedSessionStore you can just simply inherit from its interface
The requirements are the following:
