Subject [jira] Commented: (MRM-728) After successful admin login archiva reacts as if user is guest
Date Mon, 10 Mar 2008 10:07:28 GMT


Robin Roos commented on MRM-728:

I've now repeated the exercise with the Opera browser, so this is not an IE-specific issue.

In the process I've recorded the archiva.log.  I've annotated the log with the specific actions
I took at various times, each preceded with # for readability.  The total log is only 44 lines

A few specific points:

1. The port I'm using for Archiva on Linux is 9100 (since 8080 was in use). but I used 8080
on Windows.  Could this indicate why authentication failse?  Are there multiple places where
I ought to set 9100?

2. The log only shows INFO WARN and ERROR levels.  Can I invoke DEBUG?  I saw no way to configure
the logging via the XML files in conf/ 

3. The first entry in the log is an ascending number.  I'm seeing huge leaps in its value.
 Perhaps its time-based so I need not be concerned, but if it is a log message id of some
sort then something is putting out huge numbers of log messages on a suppressed channel. 
I point this out in case its useful, although it probably has no significance.

Finally I will happily run a new version to chase the error, run with DEBUG enabled, or do
anything else which might help to resolve this issue.  Clearly I am not the only user struggling
with this.

Many thanks, Robin.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 1.0.1

> I ran Archiva on my windows box and, after configuring the admin user, I was able to
login.  The header of the web page identified me as Administrator (admin) and I could see
all the expected functions on the left hand frame.  So far so good.
> I had Archiva installed on a linux box and started.  I surfed to the box from Windows
and configured the admin user.  But when I logged in as admin I got a page with only Search/FindArtifact/Browse
functions.  The header page reads "Login - Register".  It is as if I am not logged in and
am seeing the guest functions.  Note that if I log in with a deliberately incorrect password
then I get an error message as expected.  But logging in with the right credentials appears
to fail silently.
> As a result I cannot deploy any artifacts into Archiva, I cannot roll out the maven/subversion/archiva
based edition of our in-house project, and I fear my time is limited!
