This cache stores sessions in the current instance of CruiseControl.Net. When CruiseControl.Net is restarted the sessions will be lost.


If you have Watch Config File = true (ccservice.exe.config: /configuration/appSettings/add\[key='WatchConfigFile'\] ), whenever a configuration change is detected, the service will be restarted and all sessions will be lost. If you want sessions to persist across service restarts, use File Based Security Cache.
