Container for the parameters to the CreateLBCookieStickinessPolicy operation. Generates a stickiness policy with sticky session lifetimes controlled by the lifetime of the browser (user-agent) or a specified expiration period. This policy can be associated only with HTTP/HTTPS listeners.

When a load balancer implements this policy, the load balancer uses a special cookie to track the instance for each request. When the load balancer receives a request, it first checks to see if this cookie is present in the request. If so, the load balancer sends the request to the application server specified in the cookie. If not, the load balancer sends the request to a server that is chosen based on the existing load-balancing algorithm.

A cookie is inserted into the response for binding subsequent requests from the same user to that server. The validity of the cookie is based on the cookie expiration time, which is specified in the policy configuration.

For more information, see Duration-Based Session Stickiness in the Classic Load Balancer Guide.

public class CreateLBCookieStickinessPolicyRequest : AmazonElasticLoadBalancingRequest

The CreateLBCookieStickinessPolicyRequest type exposes the following members


Public Method CreateLBCookieStickinessPolicyRequest()

Empty constructor used to set properties independently even when a simple constructor is available

Public Method CreateLBCookieStickinessPolicyRequest(string, string)

Instantiates CreateLBCookieStickinessPolicyRequest with the parameterized properties


Public Property CookieExpirationPeriod System.Int64

Gets and sets the property CookieExpirationPeriod.

The time period, in seconds, after which the cookie should be considered stale. If you do not specify this parameter, the default value is 0, which indicates that the sticky session should last for the duration of the browser session.

Public Property LoadBalancerName System.String

Gets and sets the property LoadBalancerName.

The name of the load balancer.

Public Property PolicyName System.String

Gets and sets the property PolicyName.

The name of the policy being created. Policy names must consist of alphanumeric characters and dashes (-). This name must be unique within the set of policies for this load balancer.


This example generates a stickiness policy with sticky session lifetimes controlled by the specified expiration period.

To generate a duration-based stickiness policy for your load balancer

var response = client.CreateLBCookieStickinessPolicy(new CreateLBCookieStickinessPolicyRequest 
    CookieExpirationPeriod = 60,
    LoadBalancerName = "my-load-balancer",
    PolicyName = "my-duration-cookie-policy"
