My code is;

        id = '1234567';
        plugin.addHTTPAuth('.*yoooo\\.tv', function(req) {
            req.setHeader('Cookie', 'yoooo=' + id);
        plugin.addHTTPAuth('.*yoooo\\.tv.*', function(req) {
            req.setHeader('Cookie', 'yoooo=' + id);
        var doc = showtime.httpReq('http://yoooo.tv/json/channel_now');

httpcookies file contains:
        "name": "yoooo",
        "path": "/",
        "domain": "yoooo.tv",
        "value": "E4663CDA465AEE1D0642E461A95799BA",
        "expire": 1434331486

Movian won't set Cookie value from SetHeader:
HTTP            [DEBUG]: Connected to yoooo.tv:80 (cid=2)
HTTP-2          [DEBUG]: Sending request for http://yoooo.tv/json/channel_now (cid=2)
HTTP-2          [DEBUG]: > GET /json/channel_now HTTP/1.1
HTTP-2          [DEBUG]: > Cookie: yoooo=E4663CDA465AEE1D0642E461A95799BA
HTTP-2          [DEBUG]: > User-Agent: Movian Linux/x86_64 4.9.434.g1b404
HTTP-2          [DEBUG]: > Connection: keep-alive
HTTP-2          [DEBUG]: > Accept: */*
HTTP-2          [DEBUG]: > Accept-Encoding: identity
HTTP-2          [DEBUG]: > Host: yoooo.tv

But if I manually delete that cookie from .hts/showtime/settings/httpcookies it is setting correctly.

I suppose setHeader should override the Cookie in .hts/showtime/settings/httpcookies. Moreover it'd be good that we can overwrite/delete and get the Cookie in httpcookies from plugin...

httpclient: Make it possible to override and clear cookies using HTTP inspector callbacks

Fixes #2618


#1 Updated by Andreas Smas about 7 years ago

I just saw there is a setCookie function in the http request object.

So try

req.setCookie('yoooo', '');

#2 Updated by Andreas Smas about 7 years ago

But it seems it can't override cookies... I'll fix that

var http = require('showtime/http');
var io = require('native/io');

io.httpInspectorCreate('.*', function(req) {
  req.setCookie('PREF'); // Clear the PREF cookie
  req.setCookie('what', 'woot'); // Set what = woot

var x = http.request('https://www.google.com/', {
  debug: true
