How To Resend Received Cookies

Help Topics
Sometimes it can be useful to include cookies and their values received with the previous request in the request data of the next request. This option can be specified for every request item in the 'Cookies' tab.

If you would like to resend recevied cookies with the particular request item, follow this procedure:
  • Create first request item and specify option 'Do not resend any cookies received in the previous request when executing request item' in the 'Cookies' tab. Also make sure that this item will return some cookies in its response data.
  • Create second request item and specify option 'Resend all cookies received in the previous request when executing request item' in the 'Cookies' tab. This assures that second request item will obtain all received cookies from the first item response data and send it back to the server with its request data.
  • Execute both items together in a batch in the correct order; first item, followed by the second item.
  • Inspect both item's execution data to verify that the second item included 'Cookie' request header with cookies and values received in the response data of the first item.

Manually specify cookie values

Note that it is not possible to specify cookie values with this feature; values will be obtained from received cookies and added automatically. If you would like to add some custom cookies and their values, use 'Cookie' header instead.
