I need to save data in session on one page and retrieve same data on multiple pages. After saving the data when i refresh page Or redirect to another page data flush off . Can somebody explain me why it's happening? What can do to fix this?

I have tried with all types of sessions in magento2(customer,checkout,backend,catalog) also phpsession($_SESSION) without any luck.

am using Magento 2.1.7 with Luma Theme.

Any help will be really appreciated.


For Catalog, Checkout, Customer and other Magento session like


Because Magento 2 is no longer using core session like in magento 1.

protected $customerSession;
public function __construct(
    \Magento\Customer\Model\Session $customerSession, 
    $this->customerSession = $customerSession;

To set and get the value of session.

$this->customerSession->setCustomerName('Bob'); //Set Value
$this->customerSession->getCustomerName(); // Get Value
$this->customerSession->unsCustomerName(); // Unset Value

You can use above Factory method by creating function or directly by using objectManager

$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$customerSession = $objectManager->create('Magento\Customer\Model\Session');
