Change the value of a session cookie


I have a web application using forms authentication and cookies. I want to test the behavior of my application in case the value of my session cookie changes. Is it possible to change the value of a session cookie? I see in Chrome at F12/Resources/Cookies my session cookie. I can manually delete this cookie, but I don't see how to change the value of this cookie. Anyone a clue how to do this?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You would have to find out how to set a cookie in your application and replace the current session cookie.  Note that on the next page access, all the previous session data stored on the server should be un-available because the value of your previous session cookie was used to identify which data belonged to that session.
