Subject [jira] [Created] (CONNECTORS-1423) New UI makes it impossible to add certificates to connections with certificate stores
Date Fri, 05 May 2017 19:25:04 GMT
Karl Wright created CONNECTORS-1423:

             Summary: New UI makes it impossible to add certificates to connections with certificate
                 Key: CONNECTORS-1423
             Project: ManifoldCF
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: LiveLink connector, SharePoint connector, Web connector
    Affects Versions: ManifoldCF 2.7
            Reporter: Karl Wright
            Assignee: Kishore Kumar
            Priority: Blocker

(1) Create a Sharepoint repository connection
(2) Click on the Server tab
(3) Try to add a certificate by finding a valid cert and clicking the "Add" button

A 500 error is returned.  The exception trace looks like this:

Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException
        at org.apache.manifoldcf.crawler.connectors.sharepoint.SharePointReposit
        at org.apache.manifoldcf.core.interfaces.ConnectorFactory.processThisCon

        at javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(
        at org.apache.jasper.servlet.JspServletWrapper.service(JspServletWrapper

It looks like the rendering flow is no longer the same, and therefore the certificate store
is not loaded into the local variable that the processConfigurationPost() method is expecting
to find it in.

The connector code can be rewritten for the connectors where this happens but frankly this
will cause many of the connector UI's out there to break badly.  Is there another way to address
