User Authentication in Rollbase 3.0 Private Cloud issue

  • Hi,
    I have a Rollbase 3.0 Private Cloud installed and for a Customer I want to use a HTTP GET atuhentication. I am using the same url as in a 2.2 environment and imported the users from that environment.

    Testing the external authentication raises a system error 'No user account for null' . I chcecked with a new user created but same issue appears.

  • Hi Mihai,

    I would like to test this over here.

    Can you include some exact steps to repro ?

  • Hi Sven,

    The setup is the following:

    - install new 3.0 using installer

    - generate users from a customer in 2.2 version

    - create a customer in 3.0 environment

    - import users generated

    - in the customer->administration setup->authentication select http get

    - use a dummy service in target URL (http://host:port/ServiceName)

    - in response text set 'REST Adapter'

    - add a user login name from the imported users and a dummy password

    - on 'Test Extranal Authentication' the error is raised.


  • This is a regression in 3.0 2 release. We will be fixing this in an upcoming HotFix

  • As work around you can edit the source of the Webpage authentication2.jsp (right click to inspect element in the browser) and replace the below 2 lines

    <form action="../setup/authDebug3.jsp" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="formDebug" target="Debug">


    <form action="../setup/authDebug3.jsp" method="post"  name="formDebug" target="Debug">




    <form action="administrationSetup.jsp" method="post" name="theForm" enctype="multipart/form-data" onsubmit="rbf_disableAllButtons()">


    <form action="administrationSetup.jsp" method="post" name="theForm" onsubmit="rbf_disableAllButtons()">

    Basically we need to remove 'enctype="multipart/form-data" ' from both Form Elements.

    Hope this will help you.

  • Yes, this solved the issue. Thank you
