Defines cookie variables, including expiration and security options.
This tag can't have a body.
<cfcookie [domain="string"] [encodevalue="boolean"] [expires="object"] [httponly="boolean"] name="string" [path="string"] [preservecase="boolean"] [secure="boolean"] [value="string"]>
This tag is also supported within cfscript
<cfscript> cookie [domain="string"] [encodevalue="boolean"] [expires="object"] [httponly="boolean"] name="string" [path="string"] [preservecase="boolean"] [secure="boolean"] [value="string"]; </cfscript>
The attributes for this tag are fixed. Except for the following attributes no other attributes are allowed.
|domain||string||No||Domain in which cookie is valid and to which cookie content
can be sent from the user's system. By default, the cookie
is only available to the server that set it. Use this
attribute to make the cookie available to other servers.
Must start with a period. If the value is a subdomain, the
valid domain is all domain names that end with this string.
This attribute sets the available subdomains on the site
upon which the cookie can be used.
|encodevalue||boolean||No||if set to true, Railo url encodes the given name and value if necessary.|
|expires||any||No||Schedules the expiration of a cookie variable. Can be specified as a date (as in, 10/09/97),
number of days (as in, 10, 100), "Now", or "Never". Using Now effectively deletes the cookie from
the client browser.
|httponly||boolean||No||If HttpOnly is set to true, this cookie is marked as HttpOnly, by adding the HttpOnly attribute to it.
HttpOnly cookies are not supposed to be exposed to client-side scripting code, and may therefore help mitigate certain kinds of cross-site scripting attacks.
|name||string||Yes||The name of the cookie variable.|
|path||string||No||URL, within a domain, to which the cookie applies;
typically a directory. Only pages in this path can use the
cookie. By default, all pages on the server that set the
cookie can access the cookie.
path = "/services/login"
|preservecase||boolean||No||if set to true Railo keep the original case for the name, otherise the name is converted to a upper case string|
|secure||boolean||No||Yes or No. Specifies that the variable must transmit securely. If the browser does not support
Secure Socket Layer (SSL) security, the cookie is not sent.
|value||string||No||The value assigned to the cookie variable.|
