  • Application level custom cookie nema will be ignored if Web

    ****************************************************************
    The application level custom session cookie name will be
    ignore if the web module level cookie value is set, but the
    "Override Session Management" option is not set.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been updated to correctly review both Web Module
    level and Application Level custom cookie options and will
    persist either if the "Override Session Management" is set.
    In the case where both are set, the Web Module will take
    precidence over the applicaiton level.
    
    The fix for this APAR is targeted for inclusion in fix pack
    8.5.5.18 & 9.0.5.4.  For more information, see
