Daily Log for #alfresco

2019-07-17 05:53:36 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> You can't just set the cookie at the LB level if it doesn't exist?

2019-07-17 05:54:01 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> Or is APS just creating a new session for each call?

2019-07-17 08:59:21 GMT <AFaust> For pete's sake, even though the OpenCMIS integration in Alfresco has a property to activate HTTP session cookies, the logic that evaluates that is explicitely not being called / included in Public API CMIS endpoints (because it is mixed within some auth logic, and no one at Alfresco bothered to separate that apparently)

2019-07-17 09:00:58 GMT <AFaust> MorganP: APS is just using plain CMIS - they are creating a CMIS session per service task invocation, which is reused for multiple calls. But by default, a CMIS session does not have a HTTP session associated to it, both due to APS not configuring cookies to be managed in a CMIS sessions, and Alfresco not creating an HTTP session / setting a session cookie in the Public API CMIS endpoints

2019-07-17 09:04:34 GMT <alfresco-discord> <MorganP> I see, bothersome then 😄

2019-07-17 09:49:33 GMT <alfresco-discord> <dgradecak> AFaust, if it is just for stiky sessions, can't you use a header or something like that?

2019-07-17 10:26:57 GMT <AFaust> dgradecak: I could, but then it would be a different kind of change (infrastructure), since it would no longer be restricted to just the configuration / code of the actual applications (ACS / APS) and involve changes to the proxy / load balancer. Better to keep it where it belongs...

2019-07-17 10:27:41 GMT <AFaust> I have now patched the PublicApiAlfrescoCmisService to include the same kind of logic as its base class (which it does not call via super to avoid the auth code in it)
