|Summary||0001983: Please document the trigger-by-cookie protocol in inundating detail|
|Description||Currently the step debugging documentation says:|
> Browser Application #
> The recommended way to initiate a debugging session is by configuring your IDE to accept
> incoming debugging connections, and then use a browser extension which sets the right trigger cookie.
> Browser Extension Initiation
> The extensions are:
> Xdebug Helper for Firefox (source).
> Xdebug Helper for Chrome (source).
> XDebugToggle for Safari (source).
> Each extension adds an icon to your browser where you can select which functionality
> you want to trigger. Xdebug will continue to start debugging for every request as long
> as the debug toggle has been enabled.
This is insufficiently informative. I want to possess the knowledge that will enable me to sculpt the triggering cookie by hand and manually add it to a Postman request. I don't want to **need** to use a browser extension to first generate a profiling request from the browser, capture it in devtols, and only then learn in this roundabout way how the cookie(s) should be formed. I would like this to be explicitly documented.

This is in the documentation
add ?XDEBUG_SESSION_START=xdebug as a GET param, and the session will start and the debug cookie will be set for future use
||That's already in the docs: https://xdebug.org/docs/step_debug#start_with_request — if that's not enough, or if you're missing things, can you let me know what that is please?|
||The ritual for *summoning* the cookie is documented, but I want still more power: I want to be able to *create* the cookie. I want to be able to type the correct `Cookie:` header by hand, without having to perform the ritual. Use case: synthesizing a request from scratch in Postman. I don't want to have to send a cookieless request first with ?XDEBUG_SESSION_START, then inspect the response for Set-Cookie header, and only then copy the cookie to the request.|
