Subject [jira] [Updated] (COUCHDB-1452) Can't POST /_session with require_valid_user=true (Cookie authentication)
Date Sun, 01 Apr 2012 13:06:28 GMT

Seb updated COUCHDB-1452:
-------------------------

    Description: 
Hello

I'm playing with couchdb and having a small problem with authentication (I would like to be
cookie+https only)

With require_valid_user, every action must be authenticated.

Then we need to authenticate to couchdb in order to POST to /_session.

So, if you disable classical HTTP auth, you can't authenticate users on couchdb only with
cookie.

[root@CouchDBTest ~]# curl -vX POST http://localhost:5984/_session -H 'Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded'
-d 'name=admin&password=this_is_a_test'
* About to connect() to localhost port 5984 (#0)
*   Trying ::1... Connection refused
*   Trying 127.0.0.1... connected

< Content-Length: 61
< Cache-Control: must-revalidate
< 
{"error":"unauthorized","reason":"Authentication required."}
* Connection #0 to host localhost left intact
* Closing connection #0

The workaround to obtain a cookie with require_valid_user=true is to authenticate with classical
HTTP auth then to auth again with a POST on _session.

Not POST /_session should be allowed even for require_valid_user=true ?


Thank in advance :)
