Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1321) Vars in Rewrite rules break OAuth authentication
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2011 10:32:51 GMT


Benoit Chesneau commented on COUCHDB-1321:

Patch looks good. But i wonder if rather it shouldn't be better if rewriting couldn't be done
before we start the auth handling . I'm not sure why here the raw path iand current HOST header
sn't used in oauth etc, since this is the one that have been rewritten (a new request object
is created) .

> When a rewrite rule containing a var ( such as /:name/myfunction ) matches an incoming
request then an additional query param gets created. Unfortunately this new query param gets
included in the Signature Base String when the OAuth code generates its version of the request
signature to validate the incoming request it causing authentication to fail.
> To fix this isn't straightforward. When a VHost is configured there is a handy copy of
the original URL in (x-couchdb-vhost-path) that can be used to generate the Signature Base
String, unfortunately if there isn't a VHost no such copy exists.
