I am implementing a multi user shiny app. After we close a shiny app or reload it, the session is lost and new session is created, I want a way to connect to the existing session and access all the inputs and outputs in that particular session. So that I can take particular user from where he left the application.
there are many other things where we have problems like this :
when we bookmark a state using enableBookmarking("server") , it returns a link with a long random state_id which cannot be overwritten and is different every time I bookmark, I want to customize this state_id.
e.g. : example bookmarking link http://127.0.0.1:5423/?state_id=afc656780be7e3b4 in this link, it will be really helpful to add a custom state_id and functionalities like overwriting the existing bookmark.
When I create a url object using session$registerDataObj to POST something in my shiny app from another server, every time it creates a new endpoint, which needs to be conveyed to the server on another side to accept POST requests.
eg : session/9b00ed134223d34d261bf6e8a94c2b23/dataobj/api?w=&nonce=7fbb802e63d73de6
this is not necessarily a problem as far as we are in a same session but if the user refreshes the app, the endpoint also gets changed.
P.S. : I am aware that user and session management features are available in shiny server pro (at least to some extent) but I can't use that
