Setting a cookie through dispatcher

Avatar

Level 3

I am trying to set a cookie through dispatcher  and I using the below header

Header set Set-Cookie "currentCountryNames=Indian; path=/"

 

It works fine with static value, but I need to get the dynamic value through CDN(cloudfront) by using header HTTP:CLOUDFRONT-VIEWER-COUNTRY-NAME .

 

I tried this then

Header set Set-Cookie "currentCountryName=%{HTTP:CLOUDFRONT-VIEWER-COUNTRY-NAME}; Path=/"

but it did not worked it is giving syntax error 

Unrecognized header format %;

Hi @varun790 
You can try

 

<Location "/your-path">
SetEnvIf CLOUDFRONT-VIEWER-COUNTRY-NAME "(.*)" COUNTRY=$1
Header always set Set-Cookie "country=${COUNTRY}; Path=/; Expires=Thu, 01 Jan 2023 00:00:00 GMT"
</Location>

 

Note: The SetEnvIf directive requires the mod_setenvif module to be enabled in Apache. Ensure that it is enabled in your Apache configuration. Additionally, this assumes that CloudFront is forwarding the CLOUDFRONT-VIEWER-COUNTRY-NAME header to your origin server.

@varun790 : I am not sure if CloudFront header be accessible in dispatcher layer like the way you are trying to access.

Is it not possible for you to set this cookie at CloudFront layer?

thanks.

Hi @varun790 

You can set a cookie with the value of the HTTP:CLOUDFRONT-VIEWER-COUNTRY-NAME header using expr syntax:

<If "%{HTTP:CLOUDFRONT-VIEWER-COUNTRY-NAME} != ''">
    Header expr Set-Cookie 'currentCountryName="%{HTTP:CLOUDFRONT-VIEWER-COUNTRY-NAME}"; Path=/'
</If>
