Subject [jira] Created: (ROL-1818) Testing login with https switched on
Date Tue, 16 Jun 2009 13:43:07 GMT
Testing login with https switched on

                 Key: ROL-1818
             Project: Roller
          Issue Type: Test
          Components: User Interface - General
    Affects Versions: 5.0
            Reporter: Greg Huber
            Assignee: Roller Unassigned
            Priority: Minor


I have noticed that on the login when https is swithed on and every now and then we get a
access denied page after logging on, thrown from the UISecurityInterceptor:

 User authenticatedUser = ((UIAction)theAction).getAuthenticatedUser();
 if(authenticatedUser == null) {
                log.debug("DENIED: required user not found");
         return "access-denied";

because the getAuthenticatedUser(); is null, and tracing this back the request.getUserPrincipal();
from the rollersession is null.

It seems to be something when the session is swithed over from https back to http, as it does
not happen when the https is off.

I have tried to do some debugging but have not been able to pin point where it goes wrong
as its not consistant.  Also if the session times out (tomcat),  sometimes the login does
not work with the same access-deinied page.

Stranger, if there is code in the SchemeEnforcementFilter for the https, ie always a session
it does not happen (as yet!).

HttpSession session = req.getSession(false);
if (session == null) {
  session = req.getSession(true);

Further investigation is needed on this.

Cheers Greg
