Hi Ruchita,

Please note that:

(i). the user session is not actually stored in the gmid cookie

(ii). SAP CDC does not support direct manipulation of cookie data

If the user already has an active session in the browser that is issued by CDC's Web SDK, the user info can be retrieved in the browser using the accounts.getAccountInfo JS Web SDK method.

Additionally, if the use-case is to then pass the flow to a server-side or 3rd-party application, this can be done by retrieving an id_token using the accounts.getJWT JS method, which contains the user information and can be validated against the JWT public key for the site.
