dw.system
Class Request
Object
dw.system.Request
Represents a request in Commerce Cloud Digital. Each pipeline dictionary contains a CurrentRequest object, which is of type dw.system.Request. Most requests are HTTP requests, so you can use this object to get information about the HTTP request, such as the HTTP headers. You can also get a list of cookies, if any, associated with the request. If the request is issued from a job, the request is not an HTTP request, so HTTP-related methods return null.

Method Detail
addHttpCookie
addHttpCookie(cookie : Cookie) : void
Adds the specified cookie to the outgoing response. This method can be called multiple times to set more than one cookie. If a cookie with the same cookie name, domain and path is set multiple times for the same response, only the last set cookie with this name is send to the client. This method can be used to set, update or delete cookies at the client. If the cookie doesn't exist at the client, it is set initially. If a cookie with the same name, domain and path already exists at the client, it is updated. A cookie can be deleted at the client by submitting a cookie with the maxAge attribute set to 0 (see Cookie.setMaxAge() for more information).
 Example, how a cookie can be deleted at the client:
var cookie : Cookie = new Cookie("SomeName", "Simple Value");
cookie.setMaxAge(0);
request.addHttpCookie(cookie);
