Big IP cookie not getting invalidated in PRPC 7.2.2 when Passivating to database.
When configuring database passivation in PRPC 7.2.2 I am seeing that the user data gets passivated to the database but the BIG IP COOKIE is not getting invalidated by PRPC. Below is the configuration placed in the prconfig.xml file.
The theory behind the "cookieToInvalidate” setting is that some load balancers use a cookie to keep you sticky. So the value that you give to this setting should be the cookie that your load balancer uses to keep your session sticky.
The named cookie will never be created or set by the PRPC engine - it is something that the load balancer should put on the request. Then in order to move that requestor to another node, we need to clear that cookie so the load balancer sees the session as new incoming request.
I am working on the similar scenario in Pega 7.4. And if the named cookie is never set by PRPC engine, i.e. it does not invalidate it, why does PRPC need to know its name? Why should it be in settings at all?
