Can optimizely target cookies that are flagged as secure?

Im trying to target a cookie and its not working. It is a secure cookie, is this why there's a problem?

Yes, that's why there's a problem. Optimizely cannot use HttpOnly cookies (cookies accessible only on server-side).

@robertchan is correct.

If the cookie is not accessible on the client side then Optimizely will not be able to access it. The reason is because our snippet runs on the client side.
