I am creating an HTML Portlet for use within a CA Clarity PPM On Demand system.
I am trying to get the user's SessionID vis Javascript by creating a function to getCookie() in an HTML Portlet.
The output generates 'undefined' message.

Is this supported in an On Demand Environment?


Pulling the sessionID via Javascript in an On Demand environment is not supported.
We utilize the httpOnly cookie to prevent possible cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.
This locks the sessionID cookie to only be available to the server.
