Where can I find the session ID


I have a problem with the SSO.

We have two systems, which a cooperating webapplication.

We installed a single sign on, but we seem to have a problem with the session.

System 2 is properly called and the sign on works. But when navigating back from system 2 to system 1, there occur many session timeouts and errors.

Now I'd like to ask, where in my application controller do I find the session ID. Or where can I get an overview of the session tickets?

    You seem to confuse session id with "ticket", probably meaning SSO2?

    The session id is stored in runtime->session_id (as mentioned before). It is only of interest if you are running stateful.

    My experience has shown that any problem that requires understanding session managment will require install a good HTTP proxy tool. See Craig's bag of tricks for a reference of such tools. Then look at the behaviour of the session cookies. (And as Eddy asked: are they also returned correctly to server each time?).

      Have you got a cookie called sap-contextid? In that cookie you may have the session id.

      But having 2 systems, is possible that when navigating back from system2 to system1, the session id in system1 is not valid, then session timeouts error occurs.
