You can set headers in the HTTP responses sent using what your function returned by making sure the dictionary returned by your function includes a headers key.


def main():
  return {
    'headers': {
      'Set-Cookie': '<header_value>'

Because this example was for Python, a dict is returned. But, this concept applies to all languages supported by Functions. You’d use whichever data type is most appropriate.

Example for Node.js:

function main() {
  return {
    headers: {
      'Set-Cookie': '<header_value>'
