Issue/Introduction

 

When running a Web Agent, one can note that using it as a Cookie
Provider, the SMSESSION cookies are sent to Cookie Provider and back
in the URL. Some asks if it is supported to send SMSESSION cookie via
a client to a Web Agent in the URL ?

 

Resolution

 

No, the usage of sending an SMSESSION cookie in the URL is supported
only with a Cookie Provider. This usage, even if it may work, has not
been tested nor developed for usage outside of the Cookie Provider
context.
