Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-10327) SSO fails with error "Session Expired", except for root admin
Date Fri, 16 Mar 2018 10:56:00 GMT
Olivier Lemasle created CLOUDSTACK-10327:

             Summary: SSO fails with error "Session Expired", except for root admin
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-10327
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: API
    Affects Versions:
            Reporter: Olivier Lemasle
            Assignee: Olivier Lemasle

CloudStack SSO (using {{security.singlesignon.key}}) does not work anymore with CloudStack
4.11, since commit [9988c26|]

This commit introduced a new feature (the ability to limit admin API calls to a network CIDR),
but also a regression due to a refactoring: every API request that is not "validated" generates
the same error (401 - Unauthorized) and *invalidates the session*.

However, during an SSO login, CloudStack executes (since CS 4.7), a [call to "listConfigurations"|],
an API command reserved for root admins. When the user is not a root admin, he does not have
the privileges for this command.

With CloudStack up to 4.10, an error 432 was returned (and ignored):

{{{"errorresponse":\{"uuidList":[],"errorcode":432,"cserrorcode":9999,"errortext":"The user
is not allowed to request the API command or the API command does not exist"}}}}

With CloudStack 4.11, the error 432 is replaced by an error 401 and the session is invalidated.
Then the next API calls lead to an error "Session Expired" and the user cannot log in.

{{{"listconfigurationsresponse":\{"uuidList":[],"errorcode":401,"errortext":"unable to verify
user credentials and/or request signature"}}}}
