    When a user other than host (for example: Administrator) logs into our DNN portal, a DNN api endpoint at https://xxxx.xxxxxxx.com/desktopmodules/dnnsharp/dnnapiendpoint/api.ashx?method=getminicartsettings&DNNPortalID=345 is setting .DOTNETNUKE cookie to NULL, expiring user session and throwing him out to login page again.

    The underlying proc for fetching "getminicartsettings" is working perfect.

    Does anyone has any idea what could be the issue and how can we stop this cookie from getting NULL? Because of this issue all our administrator are unable to login to our site.

    Please help.

      Does that domain match your portal alias? If your site is site345.example.com and the API call is to www.example.com, DNN will see that the account in your authentication cookie is not valid for that portal and therefore clear the authentication cookie. If you are able to control that request, you can try adding &portalId=345 to the query-string, which will tell DNN which portal you're coming from, even if the URL doesn't match.
