Problem Description:

I have an application which name contains an "@" character.

This causes issues with the cflogin function (The string COOKIE.CFAUTHORIZATION_myapp@mycompany is not a valid ColdFusion variable name.), but I've used the "applicationtoken" argument to get around the issue and used the hash of the application name.

However when trying to use the cflogout function, coldfusion throws the same exception as above and there is no way to specify the applicationtoken.

Steps to Reproduce:

1/ create an application an set the name to something like: "myapp@mycompany"
2/ In index.cfm, use the following code to log-in the user then log-off:
        cfloginuser(name="user", password="pwd", roles="user");

    // This will fail

Actual Result:

An exception occurs:
Detail 	Valid variable names must start with a letter and can only contain letter, numbers, and underscores.
ErrNumber 	0
Message 	The string COOKIE.CFAUTHORIZATION_myapp@mycompany is not a valid ColdFusion variable name. 

Expected Result:

The logout successfully occurs.

Any Workarounds:

On a side note, I don't think the cflogin should fail either, cookie names should accept special chars. Should I consider opening a ticket for this too?

Workaround: cfcookie(name="CFAUTHORIZATION_#hash(", value="", expires="now");

Hi Geoffrey, Could you specify what all settings you have done in your Application.cfc (specifically the loginstorage). Thanks, Preethi

Hi Preethi, the loginstorage is not set in the application and should be "cookie" by default. I've restarted the coldfusion server an this error stopped happening. It might have been an issue due to a cached value and would like to withdraw the bug. Thank you.
