DataScript: avi.http.get_cookie


Function avi.http.get_cookie( name [, context] )
Description Returns the value of a specific cookie from the client request or server response header.
Parameter Specify the name of the cookie to inspect.
Rather than inspect the cookie from the current event context, specify the context of either avi.HTTP_REQUEST or avi.HTTP_RESPONSE to inspect cookies from those events. For instance, during an HTTP response event, check for a cookie sent by the client during the request event.
Returns String of the cookie’s value if it exists, else nil.
Example Check the value of cookie named ‘foo’. If the value is not ‘bar’, then do something.
if avi.http.get_cookie("foo") ~= "bar" then
   -- do something with the cookie header
