Thanks for reply, I am using google chrome on ubuntu linux. But as i check with F5 support they told that for every tab in a browser it acts as a new session for bigip and it will have new cookie value generated.
Can we get some stickiness based on client browser level. We thought simple http cookie insert profile will do but i don't think it is working as expected.
That's interesting; if you are launching the tabs like normal in Chrome, then both session and persistent cookies should be shared across the tabs. Nearly every browser works this way -- it pretty much has to since popup and new window launches are pervasively used on the web.
Either your tab is being launched in "Incognito mode" -- meaning it has no attachment to other tabs' settings, or your installation of Chrome may be corrupted. For the first item to be true, you'd have to be launching from Tools -> New Incognito window or with Ctrl+Shift+N.
If you're not doing this, it's possible your cookie storage is corrupt. This may sound weird, but it's possible for Chrome to get into a state where its cookie storage is no longer readable and it'll behave as if it has no cookie storage at all. Check first at chrome://settings/cookies and try a "Remove all". If you get no error, try the tab scenario again. If you get an error, you may need to reinstall Chrome or locate the cookies database in ~/.config/Chrome/Default and delete it manually.
Is Chrome the only browser affected by this? How does Firefox behave?
One more thing to add here is that with every tab we have separate wc domain like
for tab1 - 1.xyz.com
for tab2 - 2.xyz.com
for tab3 - 3.xyz.com
1,2,3 are appended in the domain url based on the tabs we open in the browser
So i think based on the domain url value the cookie value differ across multiple tabs. Is there anyway we can differ this behavior and have some sticky session based on per browser (per device) (any no. of tabs).
