[Archivesspace_Users_Group] Trouble transferring resource

Hey Trevor,

We need to change and use sessions instead of cookies for transferring large resources.
I have added comment from StackOverflow (my favorite source) to the JIRA ticket,

Here it is again:

Rails cookies are limited to 4KB. Note that the sessions is also stored in the cookie in the default configuration. See: http://guides.rubyonrails.org/security.html#session-storage
The only thing you can do about that: Do not store big objects in the cookie. Store them in the database and then only store the object's id in the cookie.

Subject: [Archivesspace_Users_Group] Trouble transferring resource


We're trying to transfer a relatively large resource to a different repository and the transfer keeps failing with a CookieOverflow exception (the most delicious exception of all).

The exception response HTML is attached. We're on v. 1.5.1.

Anybody every experience this? Is there a cure?
