How to use a client token to authenticate on crowd server Edited


Actually, I have a web service which is requested by my website, and I would like to use this web service to request an other web service which need crowd authentication.

The clients have a crowd token given by an other website which authenticate them on the crowd server and i would like to use this token on my web service to authenticate them on the crowd server. And by this way the web service can do request by their access and their name.

But it work if I use the to create a token with their user password, but if i copy past or get the token from the authentication website it didn't work.

It's close from this organization:

I'm sorry if it isn't very well explained, don't hesitate to ask me if you have any question.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @theo 

Let's sum up what you have here:

User's Browser -> Web application -> Web Service A -> Web Service B

What you are facing here is what is detailed in the 'Cause' section of this KB.

From Web Service B's perspective, requests come from Web Service A's IP address, whereas the Crowd token that was initially generated was tied to your user's IP address.

You have two options here:

  • Option #1: uncheck 'Require Consistent Client IP Address' in Crowd's console as detailed here
  • Option #2: add the IP addresses of Web application and Web Service A to the list of trusted proxy servers in Crowd's console and make sure to add the user's IP address, Web Application's IP address and Web Service A's IP address (in that order) to the X-Forwarded-For header as detailed here
