Subject HTTP cookie manager and cross domain cookies
Date Wed, 11 Mar 2009 06:38:28 GMT


It appears that HTTP cookie manager allows cross domain cookies, which
is different to the behaviour of the browsers. I'm writing a test for an
application, which is using Identity Management platform with cross
domain single sign on. The chain of event is the following: - website domain - identity management domain (different to the first domain)


1.	Login page on - sends request to with the
entered user credentials. sets cookies with authentication
information for both, and and redirects back to
2.	Since it's a different domain, the cookie for isn't set,
so it has to do a couple of redirects to check if the user is authorised
to see the page and only then returns the page.


That's how it works in the browser. In JMeter I can clearly see that at
the step 2 cookies for domain are passed through and the
requested page is returned straight away. I tried different  "Cookie
policy" settings, didn't help.


I don't think that's how it supposed to work, can anyone comment on
that? I'm using JMeter 2.3.2, "HTTP Request" sampler with "Follow
redirects" and "Redirect automatically" turned off.
