Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (HTTPCLIENT-1451) HttpClient does not store response cookies on a 401

I'm experiencing this same problem when authenticating with Microsoft Forefront Threat Management
Gateway. TMG sends a header to clear the session cookie along with a 401 upon session expiration
and it seems like it does not accept credentials if the cookie is kept (this results in a
401 again).

What would be the suggested workaround to have HttpClient process response cookies of a 401
response?

> Using HttpClient 4.3.2 to call a Web Service which is secured with BASIC authentication.
The server responds to the initial request with a 401 response but also includes a cookie.
> The HttpClient does not place response cookies into the cookie store until after it has
completed the subsequent request with the Authorize header, but the server rejects the authentication
if the cookie is missing. 
> To work around this I had to disable the authentication capability in the HttpClientContext
and manually check for the 401 response code, and then send a followup request with a manually
set Authorize header.
> So in the use case where the HttpClient is automatically sending a followup request with
credentials in response to a 401, the client should place the cookies from the original response
into the cookie store immediately, rather than waiting for after the response to the credentials
(the 2nd response).
