connect-mssql-v2

SQL Server session store for Connect/Express based on node-mssql and the deprecated/abandoned project connect-mssql.

Installation

npm install connect-mssql-v2

Prerequisites

Before you can use session store, you must create a table. Recommended table name is sessions but you can change it via options. The database user must have db_datareader, db_datawriter, and db_ddladmin permissions.

CREATE TABLE [dbo].[sessions](
    [sid] [nvarchar](255) NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,
    [session] [nvarchar](max) NOT NULL,
    [expires] [datetime] NOT NULL
)

Usage

Javascript

const MSSQLStore = require('connect-mssql-v2');

const config = {
  user: '...',
  password: '...',
  server: 'localhost', // You can use 'localhost\\instance' to connect to named instance
  database: '...',
  options: {
    encrypt: true, // Use this if you're on Windows Azure
    trustServerCertificate: true, // use this if your MS SQL instance uses a self signed certificate
  },
};

app.use(
  session({
    store: new MSSQLStore(config, options), // options are optional
    secret: 'supersecret',
  }),
);

Typescript

import MSSQLStore from 'connect-mssql-v2';

const config = {
  user: '...',
  password: '...',
  server: 'localhost', // You can use 'localhost\\instance' to connect to named instance
  database: '...',
  options: {
    encrypt: true, // Use this if you're on Windows Azure
    trustServerCertificate: true, // use this if your MS SQL instance uses a self signed certificate
  },
};

app.use(
  session({
    store: new MSSQLStore(config, options), // options are optional
    secret: 'supersecret',
  }),
);

Options

  • options.table - Table to use as session store. Default: [sessions]
  • options.ttl - (Time To Live) Determines the expiration date. Default: 1000 * 60 * 60 * 24 (24 hours)
  • options.autoRemove - Determines if expired sessions should be autoremoved or not. If value is true then a new function, destroyExpired(), will autodelete expired sessions on a set interval. Default: false
  • options.autoRemoveInterval - Sets the timer interval for each call to destroyExpired(). Default: 1000 * 60 * 10 (10 min)
  • options.autoRemoveCallback - Is the callback function for destroyExpired(). Default: undefined
  • options.useUTC - Determines if we are to use the GETUTCDATE instead of GETDATE Default: true

Advanced usage

const store = new MSSQLStore(config, options);

store.on('connect', () => {
	// ... connection established
});

store.on('error', (error) => {
	// ... connection error
});

store.on('sessionError', (error, classMethod) => {
  // ... any error that occurs within a store method
  // classMethod will return the method name (get, set, length, etc)
})
app.use(session({
    store: store
    secret: 'supersecret'
}));

Configuration

To see all options please visit node-mssql docs.

Upgrading from v4.x.x to v5.x.x

Ensure you're running Node >=v15

Upgrading from v3.x.x to v4.x.x

Ensure you're running Node >=v13

Upgrading from v2.x.x to v3.x.x

The key step to upgrading is to include

trustServerCertificate: true;

in your options object for the store config (see either javascript or typescript example) if running a local instance of MS SQL with a self signed certificate. If you do not provide this, you will get a connection error

ConnectionError: Failed to connect to databaseserver:1433 - self signed certificate

Upgrading from v1.x.x to v2.x.x

It is no longer required to pass in the express-session store. Please see the Usage section on the updated import/require method.
