I have deployed lbaasv2 and launched bunch of load balancers.

For one of them, I need to configure cookie sessions. When I added it through cli

neutron lbaas-pool-update poolid --session-persistence type=dict type=APP_COOKIE,cookie_name=sessionid

I see errors in logs stating "appsession" is no longer supported by haproxy

Seems appsession is deprecated in haproxy but lbaas still uses it configure the sessions in the backedn haproxy configs

Tried editing it manually in backend but lbaas quickly overwrites it.

Any help would be appreciated....

This is a problem if you are using the old haproxy driver and is tracked on this bug:

This changed in HAproxy versions starting with 1.6, so if you have haproxy 1.6 or newer installed the old haproxy driver has this problem.

This is not a problem with the octavia driver.
