Subject [jira] [Commented] (CXF-4615) OAuthRequestFilter.java should ignore HTTP OPTIONS verb
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 18:34:14 GMT

Steven Tippetts commented on CXF-4615:
--------------------------------------

Thank you for your feedback. In order to make the CXF OAuth solution simple, I think you'll
need to have a fix to this that doesn't involve the CORS filter or extending OAuthRequestFilter.
Here's why I think this. My client is javascript in the browser and uses jQuery $.ajax to
make the call to the OAuth resource server. The client provides the $.ajax call with the Authorization
header information that includes the bearer token; however, for some reason jQuery first sends
the OPTIONS request but without including the Authorization header. I'm guessing that this
will be a problem for anyone using a javascript client.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: JAX-RS Security
>    Affects Versions: 2.6.2, 2.7.0
>            Reporter: Steven Tippetts
>            Priority: Critical

> In handleRequest of OAuthRequestFilter.java at line 54 something similar to the following
should be added:
> if (((String)m.get(Message.HTTP_REQUEST_METHOD)).equals("OPTIONS")) return null;
> This will skip any HTTP OPTIONS verb requests. I'm getting the OPTIONS verb request when
using an OAuth 2 javascript client.
> I haven't found a way in the configuration to specify that OPTIONS requests should skip
this filter.
