Issue/Introduction

A policy for specifying cookie persistence in authentication has been available since SGOS 6.7.3.1.

The object is used to control cookie persistence during user authentication. The following CPL action was added:

authenticate.persist_cookies(auto|no|yes)

 

Resolution

The following CPL action was added:

authenticate.persist_cookies(auto|no|yes)

  • auto means that the cookie persistency value configured in the realm will be used.
  • no means that the session cookie will be used in authentication in this transaction.
  • yes means that the persistent cookie will be used in authentication in this transaction.

 

Example

The following example specifies that persistent cookies are used in requests to ‘mycompany’ web pages. Users do not have to log in again on other ‘mycompany’ web pages after the user is already authenticated.

<proxy>
url.host.regex=mycompany authenticate.persist_cookies(yes)
