XMLRPC - TRAC authentication in 1.9.4

Postby wberry » Wed Sep 05, 2012 3:33 pm

Hi
For v1.9.3 I used a workaround found online to use a registered user ID on TRAC as anonymous access on our TRAC BTS is forbidden.
The implementation for BTS access on v1.9.4 has changed and I'm not sure how to send username and password in the XMLRPC connection.
Please could you suggest a method I can use to add this?
Thanks,
Wayne.

have you tried and you have found errors ?
when defining issuetracker you have a link to click that will provide a configuration example , do you have got it ?

Yes that all works. The connect is made succesfully. My issue is that testlink doesn't send any user info (username and password) when accessing TRAC.
Our TRAC system doesn't allow access to the system for anonymous users.
I need to find out how to use XMLRPC from TestLink with a valid username and password for TRAC. If not my connection is forbidden.

Thanks,
Wayne.

unfortunatelly you are not being clear on your explanation.
You need to provide:
"<issuetracker>\n" .
"<username>USERNAME</username>\n" .
"<password>PASSWORD</password>\n" .
"<uribase>'http://<YourTracServer>/<YourTracProjectName</uribase>\n" .
"</issuetracker>\n";

as you see user and password ARE REQUIRED.

My set up on testlink is this:
<issuetracker>
<username>testlink</username>
<password>testlink</password>
<uribase>http://serverone/trac/tracv12.3</uribase>
</issuetracker>

The result when I try to access the database on TRAC is this:
2012-09-10 14:11:14,370 Trac[web_ui] DEBUG: RPC incoming request of content type 'text/xml' dispatched to <tracrpc.xml_rpc.XmlRpcProtocol object at 0x7f20fe2a99d0>
2012-09-10 14:11:14,370 Trac[web_ui] DEBUG: RPC(XML-RPC) call by 'anonymous' (***WB the call should be from an authenticated user "testlink"***)
2012-09-10 14:11:14,371 Trac[xml_rpc] DEBUG: RPC(xml) call by 'anonymous', method 'ticket.get' with args: ('2000',)
2012-09-10 14:11:14,371 Trac[perm] DEBUG: No policy allowed anonymous performing XML_RPC on None
2012-09-10 14:11:14,371 Trac[web_ui] ERROR: RPC(XML-RPC) Error

I cant see any authentication being sent and so the call is marked as anonymous. I want it to use the username and password but these dont seem to be being sent.

I hope this helps clarify the issue I have.

Regards,
Wayne.

In tracxmlrpcInterface.class.php

The comments contain this information:
* In addition, you should add the permission of 'TICKET_VIEW' and 'XML_RPC'
* to the user 'anonymous' in Trac.

If these are added to the anonymous user in Trac then user credentials are not required. What I'm trying to get is an authenticated user on Trac to access tickets via XMLPRC. Therefore the credentials which in my case are "testlink" : "testlink" need to be sent.
Even though there is a username and password field in the configuration settings It doesn't look like these are being used.

Thanks,
Wayne.

If you give a look to implementation you will see this

function createAPIClient()
{
try
{
// Create a new connection with the TRAC-server.
$this->APIClient = new xmlrpc_client($this->cfg->urixmlrpc);

// Set the credentials to use to log in.
$this->APIClient->setCredentials($this->cfg->user, $this->cfg->password);

I have to digged to deep by IMHO this means we are using authentication.
Do you have tried to connect using user='NONO' password='ITHASTOFAIL' and everything worked anyway ?

I appreciate your help on this issue. If you remove permissions on Trac for anonymous for TICKET_VIEW and XML_RPC its not possible to access the database.

If TICKET_VIEW and XML_RPC are enabled for anonymous on Trac any combination of USERNAME and PASSWORD can be used in the config and it will work.

For Testlink v1.9.3 I implemented the change suggested here: http://51elliot.blogspot.co.uk/2009/01/ ... l-rpc.html
Which worked.

I've tried changing the USERNAME and PASSWORD and the Trac log shows this:
2012-09-11 10:43:56,833 Trac[web_ui] DEBUG: RPC incoming request of content type 'text/xml' dispatched to <tracrpc.xml_rpc.XmlRpcProtocol object at 0x7f7767ee6a50>

2012-09-11 10:43:56,844 Trac[perm] DEBUG: No policy allowed anonymous performing GROUP_SOFTWARE on <Resource u'ticket:2001'>
2012-09-11 10:43:56,844 Trac[blackmagic] DEBUG: User anonymous doesn't have permission GROUP_SOFTWARE
2012-09-11 10:43:56,844 Trac[perm] DEBUG: BlackMagicTicketTweaks denies anonymous performing TICKET_VIEW on <Resource u'ticket:2001'>
2012-09-11 10:43:56,844 Trac[web_ui] ERROR: RPC(XML-RPC) Error

It appears that all RPC calls are made as anonymous.

On my modified v1.9.3 I get this in the Trac log:

2012-09-11 10:53:09,657 Trac[main] DEBUG: Dispatching <Request "POST '/login/xmlrpc'">

It looks like the suggested mod for v1.9.3 I applied is running a login step.

Thanks,
Wayne.

We can't get TRAC integration to work with 1.9.4 at all just now.

We have configured the new Issue Tracker Management, and included the correct rights (XML_RPC and TICKET_VIEW - even tried with admin rights) - tried it with a specific username and password, and also with anonymous like this:

Code: Select all
<issuetracker>
<username>anonymous</username>
<password></password>
<uribase>http://servername:81/iws2</uribase>
</issuetracker>


We simply get BugID does not exist error and the following is logged in the TRAC logs:

Code: Select all
2012-09-13 10:17:16,562 Trac[main] DEBUG: Dispatching <Request "POST u'/xmlrpc'">
2012-09-13 10:17:16,562 Trac[filter] INFO: HTTPAuthFilter: No/bad authentication data given, returing 403


Anyone any ideas on how to get this working (was OK on 1.9.3 in the "old" way).

I'm sorry if this is not the right place to post this question; but I'm new to all this and just need help. I'm able to connect to the TRAC as anonymous and submit a ticket; but when trying to Add bug report I get the following message "Bug ID does not exist on BTS!" and also receiving "POST /xmlrpc HTTP/1.0" 401 49 " " "XML-RPC for PHP2.2. in my TRAC access_log
my Issue Tracker information is below. I left out my URL.
"<issuetracker>\n" .
"<username>anonymous</username>\n" .
"<password></password>\n" .
"<uribase>'http://<YourTracServer>/<YourTracProjectName</uribase>\n" .
"</issuetracker>\n";


Thanks,

Pam

why to start a thing knowing that is wrong ?
