Subject [GitHub] cloudstack pull request: Reinstate working sessions in browser
Date Mon, 08 Jun 2015 13:55:48 GMT
Github user vadimkim commented on the pull request:
    Thank you for explanation. I will try to put my points here:
    1. For public cloud HTTPS must be used (this is not an option) and external SSL offload
(proxy) should not brake entire logic.
    2. While I have found, that most of the logic works just perfect behind the proxy there
are 2 issues that need to be fixed 
    * login procedure somewhere uses direct path (not relative) and tried to call /client/api?command
directly. I have fixed it by 1 rewrite rule (see below). Otherwise login is not possible --
404 response.
    * F5 brakes session if I work over HTTPS proxy. Hope we will fix it together.
    I am using very simple nginx conf. Pure proxy:
    server {
        listen 443 ssl;
        ssl_certificate           /usr/local/etc/ssl/my.crt;
        ssl_certificate_key       /usr/local/etc/ssl/my.key;
        ssl_session_cache  builtin:1000  shared:SSL:10m;
        ssl_protocols  TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
        ssl_ciphers HIGH:!aNULL:!eNULL:!EXPORT:!CAMELLIA:!DES:!MD5:!PSK:!RC4;
        ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
        access_log            /var/log/nginx/;
        location / {
          rewrite /client(.*) $1  last;
          proxy_set_header        X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
          proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-Server $host;
          proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
          proxy_set_header        X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
          proxy_pass          http://x.x.x.x:8080/client/;
          proxy_redirect      default;
          proxy_read_timeout  90;
    x.x.x.x -- backend server where Cloudstack runs
    public name that you can access  and check *cloudStack.js* is here:
I have some more redirects from ports 8080 and 80 to 443, but they are not relevant here I
