Subject RE: login API with MD5 is not working
Date Wed, 16 Apr 2014 16:56:37 GMT
One problem is that the API documentation 
(https://cloudstack.apache.org/docs/api/apidocs-4.3/root_admin/login.html) 
still says that the password should be hashed.  The docs are out of date; send 
the password in plain text.

And - think about security.  DON'T use HTTP GET or the query parameters you 
send will be saved in the caches of all intermediate servers.  Also DO use 
HTTPS.

Subject: login API with MD5 is not working

Hi,

I am trying to login in to CS 4.3 though login API.

I am passing MD5 hash (1st) in password that works fine with CS 4.0.2 but same 
doesn't works well with CS 4.3. Then I try to pass password in plain text ( 
2nd) & it worked, Is this a bug?

Both APIs are given below,


1)
http://10.129.151.55:8080/client/api?&command=login&username=admin&password=5f4dcc3b5aa765d61d8327deb882cf99


2)

Tejas
