                <title>Description</title>

                <para><function>sd_bus_message_get_cookie()</function> returns
                the transaction cookie of a message. The cookie
                uniquely identifies a message within each bus peer,
                but is not globally unique. It is assigned when a
                message is sent.</para>

                <para><function>sd_bus_message_get_reply_cookie()</function>
                returns the transaction cookie of the message the
                specified message is a response to. When a reply
                message is generated for a method call message, its
                cookie is copied over into this field. Note that while
                every message that is transferred is identified by a
                cookie, only response messages carry a reply cookie
                field.</para>

                <para>Both functions take a message object as first
                parameter and a place to store the 64-bit cookie
                in.</para>

                <title>Return Value</title>

                <para>On success, these calls return 0 or a positive
                integer. On failure, these calls return a negative
                errno-style error code.</para>

                <para>On success, the cookie/reply cookie is returned
                in the specified 64-bit unsigned integer variable.</para>

                                assigned, or that the message is not a
