How to set HTTP only flag in cookie parameter as TRUE for web dashboards



Our security assessment team has asked us to set HTTP only flag in cookie parameter as TRUE

Is there any way we can do it ?

Hi Sachin,

I am not sure why this is considered a security problem, so if you have some background on this assessment, we would be very interested in that.

However, there is a way to turn this off. This cookie is from our real user monitoring to understand usage patterns of Dynatrace. Under Settings on the Preference screen you have to disable the switch that says "Help us improve Dynatrace..." - once that is turned off, you should not see this cookie anymore for new sessions.


Request you to share the step to turned off the UEM. I have checked self monitoring profile, no such setting available

Additional details on this regard for Dynatrace Managed will be helpful for me. Appreciate if you can share the link of enabling and disabling for a specific application in UI.
