Cannot read session variable

I'm building Shopify App using Python(Flask framework). On post-installation, I create a session variable as below and then redirect to my app main page

 

session['current_profile_id'] = my_profile_id_value

 

 From my app, I try to read the value but always got None which means the session variable was somehow not set.

 

session.get('current_profile_id')

 

Can I use sessions to share data across my app?

My app is an embedded app so it is loaded inside an iframe from Shopify admin. It seems that the session cannot be used in Iframe.

There is a report here someone facing the same issue: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/60605801/flask-session-is-not-persisting
