Login Cookies

For the Forward login cookies Results Authorization method, one or more cookies must be named in the Login Cookies setting. No values are given, as they will be obtained automatically on a per-search basis from the user.

When a user conducts a search, if the named cookies are seen from the user's browser, the user is assumed to be logged in, and the cookies are forwarded to the result URLs for authorization. If the named cookies are not seen, the user is assumed not to have logged in yet, and is redirected to Login URL instead.

Note that these cookies must be set by their server with Domain and/or Path attributes that let them be sent to the Webinator's domain name and .../search path. Otherwise the user's browser will not send them to Webinator (for forwarding), and thus Results Authorization will not work.
