Search Appliance

 

Thunderstone Search Appliance Manual

Cookie Jar

Netscape or Microsoft Internet Explorer format cookie data to load at start up. An inline alternative to Cookie Source Path. This allows persistent cookies saved by a browser to be read by the Search Appliance, so it can inherit the browser's state. To easily walk a site that requires a custom login (i.e. not HTTP Basic authentication), and that uses persistent cookies, just login normally using a browser. Then, copy that browser's cookie data into the Cookie Jar setting. Then, the Search Appliance will automatically inherit the browser's permissions. Added after version 8.0.4 2012-07-13.

The Netscape format is one cookie per line, with the tab-separated values: Domain IsOkAllDomain Path IsSecure IsHttpOnly Expires Name Value. E.g. the line:

.example.com	TRUE	/	FALSE	FALSE	0	MyCookie	MyValue
would represent a session cookie named MyCookie with value MyValue sent for any path for any site in the domain .example.com.
