Using cookies to manage a session

In a cookie session state management system, the client application or web browser provides the session ID in an HTTP cookie header instead of a URL. Cookie session management is supported with the 'Set-Cookie' HTTP response header of the sa_set_http_header system procedure.


You can not rely on cookie state management when cookies can be disabled in the client application or web browser. Support for both URL and cookie state management is recommended. The URL-supplied session ID is used when session IDs are provided by both the URL and a cookie.
