Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-12074) Cookies are ignored on first application execution
Date Sat, 25 Feb 2017 00:37:44 GMT


Shazron Abdullah commented on CB-12074:

Thanks [~ykpole]

To summarize:
1. This is a WebKit bug, still unfixed as of today:
2. The workaround is described here:

In essence, the workaround in the plugin is to:
1. Implement the 'decidePolicyForNavigationResponse' delegate method in the WKNavigationDelegate
(which is handled in CDVWKWebViewEngine.m)
2. In the delegate method above, copy the cookies from the server response into NSHTTPCookieStorage

This would copy cookies on every navigation action. The method above has not been tested.

> Our application authenticates to the server. The server sets a 'JSESSIONID' cookie. The
cookie is used by the server for session management. 
> The issue is WKWebView does not send this cookie back to the server on subsequent requests.
However, this only happens on first execution of the application, after its installation.
Once the application closed and re-opened, the cookies are properly sent and authentication
completes successfully. 
> The problematic behavior is consistent, and was observed on several devices. On the other
hand, there are no such issues with UIWebView.
