How to control report view cookie size?


  • Hi,

    We are using Apache app server to call the SSRS reports to render the reports.  It runs a while and get an error with cookie size to big message. 

    When tracing the call, I found the ReportViewer.aspx keeps generating cookies with value 1 and size 132 bytes. If the cookie size limit on Apache is set to 1000 bytes, run the report 8 times will get the error.

    What I am looking for is

    1. from where the cookie in ssrs server is managed?
    2. can i set the timeout for those cookies?

    I am trying to involve someone more familiar with this topic for a further look at this issue. Sometime delay might be expected from the job transferring. Your patience is greatly appreciated. 

    Thank you for your understanding and support.

  • Hi,

    You can try to set this parameter "UseSessionCookies" to false.
