Subject [jira] [Created] (MJAVADOC-533) <link> entries that point to a resource that requires an Accept header may be ignored
Date Thu, 09 Aug 2018 16:19:00 GMT
Andy Wilkinson created MJAVADOC-533:
---------------------------------------

             Summary: <link> entries that point to a resource that requires an Accept
header may be ignored
                 Key: MJAVADOC-533
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MJAVADOC-533
             Project: Maven Javadoc Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 3.0.1
            Reporter: Andy Wilkinson


This is a regression caused by the changes made to fix MJAVADOC-427.

The HTTP client configuration that's used to get the redirect URLs does not include an {{Accept}}
header in the requests that it makes. This can result in a 403 response for some javadoc,
such as Spring Framework's which is fronted by Cloudflare. The lack of {{Accept}} header will
sometimes cause Cloudflare to respond with a 403 containing a Captcha.

I'm a member of the Spring Framework team and have asked our sysadmin to look at tweaking
Cloudflare's rules, but I thought it worth reporting the problem here as others may be affected
and may not be in a position to change the server's configuration.
