|Summary||0000496: logout did not work as expected|
|Description||When i click "here" to logout i get the Login Prompt as expected. If i cancle that i get the "This system requires authentication. You should use a username and a password." message. But now i can use the browser back button and i don't have to login again, the previous logged out user is login in again without entering any username and password.|
Logout only works correctly if i use Firefox.
With Opera and IE logout doesn't work.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|Alexey, could you check with your browsers? Thank you.|
I can verfiy this bug with svn version 5042.
Chrome and Firefox correctly purge their authorization caches after receiving a 401 status. However Opera and IE (didn't verify the last one) don't do that. The problem arises because every page in racktables can handle http based authorization ( not just one login page ).
|Hannes, Alexey, can you replace HTTP authentication with a login form and cookie?|
|i am facing the same issue with firefox also.while i logout in chrome , it works but logout actually does not happen and i am able to go inside. i am using the latest version|
|While using Chrome and 0.20.8 I can hit the [logout] link, but then it immediately asks for my user/pass again. However, it won't authenticate even when I enter a valid username and password. I have to click the logout link, close the tab, and then open a new one to log in again. It obviously logs me out, but the authentication prompt should either (a) work after logging out or (b) return me to a login page. I personally think a login page w/cookies would be a good way to go.|
I ran into this on Firefox 43.0.4, and in Chrome Version 47.0.2526.106 m
With Firefox, hitting "logout" would take me to the root of the server http://servername/?logout, and wouldn't actually log me out. Then I had problems actually authenticating to get back in if it did (just kept on prompting me to login, even when I was entering copy / pasted credentials that I knew were correct). In Chrome, after I logged out, I couldn't log back in again until I had cleared the browser settings.
This is a show stopper for deployment. The folks where I'm looking at putting this into production are leery of "unsupported" open source software, and are all about "ease of use". I can use this myself with the workarounds, but I can't share this out.
for possible solution
While testing another feature i again stumbled upon this annoying logout behaviour.
Any progess on this?
I am seeing this on version 0.20.11 newly installed on Ubuntu 14.04.5.
Browers tested on a Windows 10 64bit laptop
Chrome 54.0.2840.99 m (64-bit)
Internet Explorer 11.0.10240.16384
On Firefox and Chrome clicking the logout takes me from http://racktables-server/racktables to http://racktables-server/logout?
Clicking back button takes me back to logged in status (as admin). Changing URL manually does the same.
On Internet Explorer the logout button just doesn't work - is not clickable.
I have tried this on a vanilla setup using
$user_auth_src = 'database';
$require_local_account = TRUE;
And an attempt at LDAP setup using
$user_auth_src = 'ldap';
$require_local_account = FALSE;
I've read through the wiki under both local auth and the Shibboleth sections but as local authentication is doing this I assume a bug? If it *is* expected behaviour then a message about it in the wiki along with a suggested workaround (in laymans terms) would benefit users. User tleavitt mentions workaround but i've not found what that workaround is - if anyone would care to share?
