In .NET Core 6.0, HttpContext can be used for Session Storage by following these steps:

  1. Add the following packages to your project:
Microsoft.AspNetCore.Session
Microsoft.AspNetCore.Session.Memory
  1. In the ConfigureServices method of the Startup.cs file, add the following code to configure session storage:
services.AddSession(options =>
{
    options.IdleTimeout = TimeSpan.FromMinutes(30);
    options.Cookie.IsEssential = true;
});
  1. In the Configure method of the Startup.cs file, add the following code to use session middleware:
app.UseSession();
  1. To store data in session, you can use HttpContext.Session object. For example:
HttpContext.Session.SetString("UserName", "John");
  1. To retrieve data from session, use the following code:
var userName = HttpContext.Session.GetString("UserName");

Note: HttpContext.Session can be used only within the context of an HTTP request. If it is used outside a request, it will throw an exception.
