API Reference

AWS services or capabilities described in AWS Documentation may vary by region/location. Click Getting Started with Amazon AWS to see specific differences applicable to the China (Beijing) Region.

Generates a stickiness policy with sticky session lifetimes that follow that of an application-generated cookie. This policy can be associated only with HTTP/HTTPS listeners.

This policy is similar to the policy created by CreateLBCookieStickinessPolicy, except that the lifetime of the special Elastic Load Balancing cookie, AWSELB, follows the lifetime of the application-generated cookie specified in the policy configuration. The load balancer only inserts a new stickiness cookie when the application response includes a new application cookie.

If the application cookie is explicitly removed or expires, the session stops being sticky until a new application cookie is issued.

For more information, see Application-Controlled Session Stickiness in the Classic Load Balancer Guide.


For .NET Core and PCL this operation is only available in asynchronous form. Please refer to CreateAppCookieStickinessPolicyAsync.

This example generates a stickiness policy that follows the sticky session lifetimes of the application-generated cookie.

To generate a stickiness policy for your load balancer

var response = client.CreateAppCookieStickinessPolicy(new CreateAppCookieStickinessPolicyRequest 
    CookieName = "my-app-cookie",
    LoadBalancerName = "my-load-balancer",
    PolicyName = "my-app-cookie-policy"
