Using Azure Redis with Managed Cloud

Abstract

Configure a shared or private session state for your Sitecore solution with the Redis cache.

There are two types of session states that Sitecore uses the Azure Redis cache for. You can use the secure Azure Redis cache to configure a shared or private session state for your Sitecore solution.

A shared session state database - shares data across multiple sessions. For example, the Redis cache collects data related to contacts and devices, and saves the information to the session state database.

You can configure a shared session state database using the Redis provider.

A private session state database - the Redis cache collects all data related to a specific interaction and saves it to the session state database. Interactions include: viewed pages, converted goals, triggered campaigns, or accumulated engagement points.

You can configure a private session state database using the Redis provider.

To configure a session state in Sitecore, refer to the Redis provider settings reference for the connection strings that you need.
