Cookie Management in Chrome
Posted by Brajesh Panda on January 11, 2013
During troubleshooting ADFS integrated SharePoint environment & related Authentication cookies, experienced a nice Chrome GUI to manage its cookies.
Usually Chrome stores its browser cookies at C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default. But not readable though. So we need a special editor to read them.
Well I was trying F12 option to open the debugger window to read my cookies like in Internet Explorer. Cookies looks great but time is in GMT format. Also F12 only shows you cookies related to the opened website in the same page.
While searching a editor to read the chrome Cookie data base found something like this;
Just type chrome://chrome/settings/cookies and enter. It will open up below window, you can search & read cookie contents for any specific website.
See my beta site has two cookies
Click the cookie name & it will open up details of the cookie. Check out those cookie expiry details etc. Here expiry dates are shown in local time – kind of neat.
