    MediaService.Delete Clears ASP.NET Session

    Hi All,

    I'm using umbraco to perform some actions against the API in my MVC controller action following a form submit. All works fine.

    The code uploads a new image, adds it using the MediaService, and then removed the previous image using the MediaService.

    I've just got to the point where I've implemented the removal logic, where I call :

    public bool DeleteMediaItem(Uri mediaItemUri) { if (mediaItemUri == null) { return false; }

    var mediaService = UmbracoContext.Current.Application.Services.MediaService;
    var mediaItem = mediaService.GetMediaByPath(mediaItemUri.ToString());
    if (mediaItem == null)
        return false;
    return true;


    If I comment out the line mediaService.Delete(mediaItem); then all works fine. However when left in, subsequent HTTP requests against my site have an empty ASP.NET Session.

    Is this a known issue?

    I'm doing something very similar I get this issue too, using version 7.3.3. Were you able to get a work around on this issue?

    For the time being I had to use .MoveToRecycleBin, i.e. in your case


    Not exactly ideal as it means it will require someone to empty out the recycle bin every now and again, or create a timed event that regularly empties it.
