Web / FAQ / What is the BCID?
When Webviewer attempts to connect to a WebViewer Server instance it will include a query parameter called
BCID when using versions of WebViewer above 7.0. This parameter is used in conjunction with our
wv-loadbalancer to maintain client stickiness to individual servers.
Every time a new document is opened in WebViewer, a new
BCID is generated. The
wv-loadbalancer will then see this ID and assign it to one of its available servers. From this point forward, that document session will be tied to that server. Once a new document is opened, this
BCID is generated again, and the
wv-loadbalancer chooses a server for this new session.
You can leverage this
BCID to maintain stickiness for your instance of WebViewer Server even if you are not using our load balancer. The following code is how this is done inside of HAProxy.
# create a stick table and stick on the query parameter 'bcid' stick-table type string len 40 size 5M expire 1d stick on url_param(bcid)
BCID can be used in conjunction with what was discussed in this guide
