'; javascript - How to get variable session in jQuery dataTables? - LavOzs.Com

I have an API called all_device with 1 parameter which is username (Image below), so I want to read current logged in user session.

enter image description here

This is what I have try.

    var username = '<%= Session["username"] %>';
    var ManageDeviceTable = $('#manageDevice').DataTable({
        ajax: { 
            url: api_url+'/all_device',
            crossDomain : true,
            type : "POST",
            cache : false,
            data: {username: username},
            dataType : "json",
            contentType: "application/json",
            dataSrc : "data",

Console log

enter image description here


header('Content-Type: application/json');
$post_data = filter_input_array(INPUT_POST, FILTER_SANITIZE_STRING);


$_SESSION["id"] = $post_data["id"];
$_SESSION["fullname"] = $post_data["fullname"];
$_SESSION["username"] = $post_data["login"];
$_SESSION["email"] = $post_data["email"];

echo json_encode(array('msg' => 'Session created.', 'session' => $_SESSION));


PHP >= 7.0 not supports short open ASP tags. You have to change like:

var username = '<?php echo $_SESSION["username"];?>';


var username = '<?= $_SESSION["username"];?>';
