In loadbalancers session affinity cookies settings allow customization of the SameSite attribute

Today loadbalancers on Datapower can handle session affinity via cookies. Only the following cookie attributes can be set : - HTTP Only - Secure There is a real need the be able to also set the "SameSite" attribute, otherwise, in some scenarios the cookie will not be sent by the browser and the Datapower will be unable to guarantee session affinity. Those scenarios involve recent Chromium-based browsers, and cross domain POST requests, a scenario that very common when integrating with third party Identity Providers.

    Hello André,

    Thank you for taking the time to submit this idea for enhancement. While this is a viable suggestion, this is not something we would expect to do in DataPower. As a result we are declining this Idea. While declined the Idea can still be voted, and commented upon, and it remains on our list of potential future items.
