SIM - Maintain session attributes

Is there any way to maintain session attributes, using HttpSession or Cookies?


I am trying to match the user in the session in the servlet handling the Silent POST and cannot find a suitable way to do this except maintining a database table.



Thanks for any help.

Re: SIM - Maintain session attributes

No, there is no way to maintain a users session utilizing silent post. However, this can be accomplished when using Relay Response by making use of a merchant defined field.  A merchant defined field is any name/value pair passed to Authorize.Net that is not a part of our API.  Information passed in a merchant defined field is returned to you during the relay response.  It is possible to utilized this feature to let you recognize the user after the transaction when they return to your site.
