Set Browser Cookie

This action will let you build an expression, and then save the results of that expression into the browser cookie you specify.

Explanation

Set browser cookie actions are used to set a piece of data into the browser's collection of cookies, which can be later read out of the browser with the Read Cookie expression function.

Example: Suppose you're building an application to allow people to receive links in their email that bring them to a page in your application that is a survey; and you only want to allow them to take this survey one time. You can use a set cookie action to write a cookie into their browser that identifies each survey they've taken so that if they try and take it a second time you can read that cookie from their browser and redirect them to a different page.

Settings

Enter the name of a browser cookie to set.

The result of this expression will be set into the browser cookie you chose above.

Choose a browser cookie lifetime option.
