Why do I login on every action ?

Hello,

I'm using a standalone Confluence-3.5.5 and on almost every action I do, login is required. This is a little bit boring :)

Can someone help me and indicate how to configure this ?

Thanks in advance

Found it !

There's an option in $CONFLUENCE_HOME/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/seraph-config.xml :

<!-- Invalidate session on login to prevent session fixation attack -->
<init-param>
  <param-name>invalidate.session.on.login</param-name>
  <param-value>true</param-value>
</init-param>

If you change the parameter value to false, it solves the problem :) We haven't this on our enterprise Confluence because we are using Crowd : the seraph config files are by-passed.

Hope this helps

I've experienced something similar before on restrictive company networks.

Is this a hosted environment? Do you have a particularly restrictive networking in your company? If so, maybe Privoxy may be able to help you track down problem calls that your network blocks.

Do you have a secure network gateway that is invalidating sessions?

Hi David,

The standalone instance of Confluence is installed on my machine (Windows XP) and I access it locally. So it could not be a network problem. But I think you're right : something is invalidating my session...

Thanks for your answer
