Session never destroyed

See original GitHub issue

Hi, I’m using generic-session with koa-redis on a side project and can’t figure out how to destroy the session. I mean, I have a /logout route that is suppose to destroy the current session with the following code:

router.get('/logout', function *() {
  this.session = null;
  this.status = 200;

As mentioned in the, this.session = null should destroy the session but in fact nothing happened. I put some console.log in the destroy method of koa-redis and I noticed this function was never called.

FYI, modules versions are:

  • koa: 1.1.2
  • koa-generic-session: 1.10.0
  • koa-redis: 1.0.1 And session are created by koa-passport (1.x.x)

I try to make test in koa-redis and koa-generic-session and everything works as expected, 100% passed.

added some test cases for rolling session, anybody can reproduce the issue and create a test case?

The bug as raised by @miserylee is still there. How can we mitigate this issue if we need to use rolling:true for every request while making sure the session was destroyed if we call it to destroy?
