Rename Siteminder Session

Question: 

Is it possible to rename Siteminder Session and How?

Environment:  

R12.0 SP2/SP3, R12.5, R12.51, R12.52

Answer: 

Yes it is possible to rename the SMSESSION.

Using below ACO parameter, we can rename the SMSESSION.

SSOZoneName

Specifies the (case-sensitive) name of the single sign-on security zone a Web Agent supports. The value of this parameter is prepended to the name of the cookie a Web Agent creates. This helps you associate cookies with their respective cookie domains. When this parameter is not empty, SiteMinder generates cookies using the following convention:

ZonenameCookiename.

Default: Empty (uses SM as a zone name, which gives the cookies the following default names):

SMSESSION, SMIDENTITY, SMDATA, SMTRYNO, SMCHALLENGE, SMONDENIEDREDIR

Limits: Single-valued

Example: Setting the value to Z1 creates the following cookies:

Z1SESSION, Z1IDENTITY, Z1DATA, Z1TRYNO, Z1CHALLENGE, Z1ONDENIEDREDIR
