I would like to use crowd as authenticaiton backend server integrating with apache http server as http authenticaiton mechanishm. I've followed document below;
I'm getting this error;
[error] CrowdAuth: Failed to authenticate application.
<Directory "/var/www/"> AuthName crowd AuthType Basic PerlAuthenHandler Apache::CrowdAuth PerlSetVar CrowdAppName XXX PerlSetVar CrowdAppPassword XXX PerlSetVar CrowdSOAPURL http://crowd.domain.com:8095/crowd/services/SecurityServer PerlSetVar CrowdCacheEnabled on PerlSetVar CrowdCacheLocation /tmp/CrowdAuth PerlSetVar CrowdCacheExpiry 300 require valid-user </Directory>
what did i check;
- application name and password correct, i also try with another application name and password it works with restfull api.
- i have checked remote ip configuration, i'm sure i added server's real external ip.
- i got tcpdump on the crowd server, it's below;
09:56:22.769876 IP xx.54627 > crowd.xxx.com.8095: Flags [P.], seq 2995895305:2995896539, ack 2611274641, win 281, options [nop,nop,TS val 254446793 ecr 3787739752], length 1234 E...0.@.;...6H.. 6"..c..... ........+...... .*....RhPOST /crowd/services/SecurityServer HTTP/1.1 TE: deflate,gzip;q=0.3 Connection: TE, close Accept: text/xml Accept: multipart/* Accept: application/soap Host: crowd.domain.com:8095 User-Agent: SOAP::Lite/Perl/0.714 Content-Length: 933 Content-Type: text/xml; charset=utf-8 SOAPAction: "" <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <soap:Envelope xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:soapenc="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" soap:encodingStyle="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/encoding/" xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"> <soap:Body> <namesp1:authenticateApplication xmlns:namesp1="urn:SecurityServer"> <in0> <credential xmlns="http://authentication.integration.crowd.atlassian.com"> <credential xsi:type="xsd:string">XXX</credential> </credential> <name xmlns="http://authentication.integration.crowd.atlassian.com" xsi:type="xsd:string">XXX</name> <validationFactors xmlns="http://authentication.integration.crowd.atlassian.com" xsi:nil="true" /> </in0> </namesp1:authenticateApplication> </soap:Body> </soap:Envelope>
- at the crowd server, the application is active.
- crowd url is correct, when i try with with curl, it works;
[Invalid SOAP request.]
Could anyone help me to solve the problem.
I see your Apache settings are a bit differente than the example in our site, have you tried with the example configuration in step 4?
<Directory "/var/mysite/"> . . . AuthName "Atlassian Crowd" AuthType Basic AuthBasicProvider crowd CrowdAppName myappname CrowdAppPassword mypassword CrowdURL http://localhost:8095/crowd/ Require valid-user . . . </Directory>
The configuration that you referred is for the 2.x version of Crowd-Apache Connector and it doesn't support ubuntu 12.04. As document says, i've used Crowd-Apache 1.4 Connector, documanted below;
Am i wrong?
"This document is for the 2.x version of Crowd-Apache Connector, if you can't find an compatible version of the 2.x Subversion Connector for your O/S in the table below then refer to the 1.4 version of the Crowd-Apache Connector."
I'm pretty sure I've tested apache connector 2.0 with newer versions of Ubuntu, I believe our docs are outdated. I've opened this request to review this information: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CWD-3963
In the meantime, if you have a test server, you may want to test apache connector 2.0.
