Cookies sent in requests are key-value pairs contained in the
Cookie header. They can be set on a request in a couple of ways. The first is using the
.cookie(name: String, value: String) method. This will yield a new request definition which, when sent, will contain the given cookie.
Cookies are currently only available on the JVM.
Cookies can also be set using the following methods:
def cookie(nv: (String, String)) def cookie(n: String, v: String) def cookies(nvs: (String, String)*)
Cookies from responses
It is often necessary to copy cookies from a response, e.g. after a login request is sent, and a successful response with the authentication cookie received. Having an object
response: Response[_], cookies on a request can be copied:
// Method signature def cookies(r: Response[_]) // Usage sttp.cookies(response)
Or, it's also possible to store only the
com.softwaremill.sttp.Cookie objects (a sequence of which can be obtained from a response), and set the on the request:
def cookies(cs: Seq[Cookie])
