How to configure cookie based sticky sessions in a load balancer with search head clustering ?

Hello Splunkers,

I am using an AWS Elastic Load Balancer (ELB) on top of clustered search heads. Problem that I am trying to solve is how to make the sessions sticky.

Right now I have enabled a time based stickiness, so that the ELB will route the requests to the right search head during the time interval set.

Amazon ELB also supports stickiness based on application cookies, which would be a better solution I think. If so how can I set it up using Splunk cookies ?

Configured ELB to perform stickiness based on splunkd_443 cookie. Working now.

You should use the 'session_id_PORTNUMBER' cookie instead as it expires based on your UI auto-logout settings
