The ApplicationGatewayAffinity cookie is a cookie that is set by Azure Application Gateway, a service provided by Microsoft Azure that enables users to manage traffic to their web applications. The purpose of the ApplicationGatewayAffinity cookie is to provide session affinity or sticky sessions for users of the web application. When a user first accesses the web application through the Application Gateway, the gateway assigns the user a unique session ID and sends it back to the user's browser in the form of a cookie. Subsequent requests from the user's browser include the ApplicationGatewayAffinity cookie, which allows the Application Gateway to identify the user's session and direct subsequent requests from the same user to the same backend server. This helps to ensure that user sessions are directed to the same server for the duration of the session, which can help to improve performance and ensure session consistency. It is worth noting that the ApplicationGatewayAffinity cookie is not used for tracking or monitoring user behavior, and the cookie is typically deleted when the user's browser session ends.
The ASP.NET_SessionId cookie is a session cookie used by Microsoft's ASP.NET web development platform. It is typically created when a user first visits a website that is built using ASP.NET. This cookie is used to identify the user's session on the server side. When a user visits a website, the server generates a unique identifier for the session and sends it to the user's browser in the form of a cookie. The browser stores the cookie and sends it back to the server with each subsequent request, allowing the server to associate all of the user's requests with the same session. The ASP.NET_SessionId cookie does not contain any personal information about the user, such as their name or email address. It is used solely for session management purposes and is deleted when the user closes their browser or after a certain amount of inactivity. The cookie is usually set to expire after a short period of time (usually around 20 minutes) to ensure that the session data is not retained for too long and to improve website security. It is important to note that the ASP.NET_SessionId cookie is specific to websites built using the ASP.NET framework and may not be used on all websites.
It is important to note that the CookieConsent cookie is not used to collect any personal information about the visitor and is only used for the purpose of managing their cookie preferences. The cookie typically expires after a certain period of time, which may vary depending on the settings of the Cookie Consent plugin.
