#14685 closed (fixed)

contrib.sessions.models has incompatible or extraneous code

`contrib.sessions.models` has a couple methods that seem outdated and extraneous.

The specific problem methods are SessionManager.encode() and Session.get_decoded(). They definitely duplicate functionality (at a copy-paste level) now found elsewhere. I think these may be vestigal, but I haven't fully investigated. Someone more familiar with the sessions framework might want to take a look.

If these are still in use somewhere, they need to be updated to match their new, higher security analogs in contrib.sessions.backends.base.

The code appears to support the API for using sessions outside of views - which is documented but completely untested. It's possible that no-one . I'll commit a fix shortly.

Thanks for the catch.
