Issue/Introduction

 

When running 2 Cookie Providers Web Agents in an environment, one
might want to know if it's possible for the Web Agent to check
provider1.domain.com and then provider2.domain.com for active session.

 

Environment

 

Web Agent all versions

 

Resolution

 

Multiple cookie providers cannot be configured in the same environment
(1). However if the Web Agents are protecting different applications,
you could evaluate if setting different "Security Zones" (2) with
their own cookie providers would match your needs.
