Instance Property


A Boolean value that determines whether requests should contain cookies from the cookie store.


@property BOOL HTTPShouldSetCookies;


This property controls whether tasks within sessions based on this configuration should automatically provide cookies from the shared cookie store when making requests.

If you want to provide cookies yourself, set this value to NO and provide a Cookie header either through the session’s HTTPAdditionalHeaders property or on a per-request level using a custom NSURLRequest object.

The default value is YES.
