I dont understand fully what you are trying to achieve there.

You are adding a header to response and try to extract it from reqyest.

Perhaps I should highlight it that response is what you send to the client, it is viewable at the browser that requested the content . You can see the header you set if you view the headers of the response page opened at the client browser.

But the request headers are sent by the browswer, you cant control them from the server.

If you want to have some information sent along the response and have the client send it back to you , you need to use the cookies.
