Some Alfresco Share proxy requests fail with 500 http status code, although Alfresco repository returns successfull http response (200)

Jump to solution

I have upgraded a customer from 5.1.4 to 5.2.4 Alfresco Enterprise.

After migrating the source code and installing the new Alfresco installation via installer, we have 

Alfresco Share itself is running, but certain requests to the alfresco repository via Share proxy SOMETIMES work and SOMETIMES fail.

We have two requests which are failing:

  • request to https://<host>/share/proxy/alfresco/slingshot/doclib2/node/workspace/SpacesStore/5cdee94b-8352-403e-a0cc-958942965ebf fails with 500 http status code and NO error response, but direct call to https://<host>/alfresco/slingshot/doclib2/node/workspace/SpacesStore/5cdee94b-8352-403e-a0cc-958942965ebf works (200 response code and valid json)
  • direct request to http://localhost:8080/alfresco/wcs/api/sites/test/memberships/userxy works, but call via share proxy does not work  https://<host>/share/proxy/alfresco/... does not work (500 response code)

This is the debug log of share after setting DEBUG loglevel to Apache HTTP Client (org.apache.http.wire) and Share RemoteClient (org.springframework.extensions.websripts.connector.RemoteClient). It shows the flow of a request to the doclib2/node endpoint...

The RemoteClient class from spring webscripts and SlingshotRemoteClient from alfresco share are responsible for handling the communication with Alfresco Repository.

The last debug output "Response encoding..." is in org/alfresco/surf/spring-webscripts/6.13/spring-webscripts-6.13-sources.jar!/org/springframework/extensions/webscripts/connector/RemoteClient.java:1245

Afterwards the http response from Alfresco should be copied to the http response from the browser to Share, but this fails resulting in the message "Exception calling..." with status code 500.

Only 2 cases set this http code - runtime exception and ioexception. 

catch (IOException ioErr)
{
    // caught a general IO exception - apply generic error code so one gets returned
    logger.info("Exception calling (" + requestMethod + ") " + url.toString());
    status.setCode(HttpServletResponse.SC_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR);
    status.setException(ioErr);
    status.setMessage(ioErr.getMessage());
    if (res != null)
    {
        res.setStatus(HttpServletResponse.SC_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR, ioErr.getMessage());
    }
   
    throw ioErr;
}
catch (RuntimeException e)
{
    // caught an exception - apply generic error code so one gets returned
    logger.debug("Exception calling (" + requestMethod + ") " + url.toString());
    status.setCode(HttpServletResponse.SC_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR);
    status.setException(e);
    status.setMessage(e.getMessage());
    if (res != null)
    {
        res.setStatus(HttpServletResponse.SC_INTERNAL_SERVER_ERROR, e.getMessage());
    }
    return null;
}

In case of the runtimeexception the method returns null and throws no exception.

So the method returns and the following code is executed. The error is not logged because the runtime exception was not rethrown  (a bug in my eyes) which leads the situation that I am not able to see the underlying issue.

Even newer versions of the org.alfresco.surf.surf-webscripts dependency have this code, altough this version of the class rethrows the exception in the catch block...

surf-webscripts/RemoteClient.java at master · Kast0rTr0y/surf-webscripts · GitHub 

public Response call(String uri, HttpServletRequest req, HttpServletResponse res)
{
    Response result;
    ResponseStatus status = new ResponseStatus();
    try
    {
        boolean isPush = (requestMethod == HttpMethod.POST || requestMethod == HttpMethod.PUT);
        String encoding = service(
                buildURL(uri),
                isPush ? req.getInputStream() : null,
                res != null ? res.getOutputStream() : null,
                req, res, status);
        result = new Response(status);
        result.setEncoding(encoding);
    }
    catch (IOException ioErr)
    {
        if (logger.isInfoEnabled())
            logger.info("Error status " + status.getCode() + " " + status.getMessage(), ioErr);
       
        // error information already applied to Status object during service() call
        result = new Response(status);
    }
    catch (Throwable e)
    {
        if (logger.isErrorEnabled())
            logger.error("Error status " + status.getCode() + " " + status.getMessage(), e);
       
        // error information already applied to Status object during service() call
        result = new Response(status);
    }
   
    return result;
}

The call method of the RemoteClient handles the null return as normal process flow, so in the end no error is returned to the client.

Besides this bug in Alfresco Surf webscripts- has anybody encountered this situation before? 

What could be the reason that for 2 webscripts over Alfresco Share sometimes break?

Re: Some Alfresco Share proxy requests fail with 500 http status code, although Alfresco repository returns successfull http response (200)

Jump to solution

Ok - the cause is a stupid NullPointerException that Alfresco has introduced in Share code for one of the 5.2 Service Packs. The bug did not exist in the latest 5.2 Community code. The bug only affects any proxy URLs that do not include a URL query (so no ? in the URL). The bug is located in line 85 of SlingshotRemoteClient. Whenever the url.getQuery() returns null, the proxy request will fail.

I believe we might have hit the same problem, using external authentication.

Works fine on another environment - same version - with saml module enabled.

I finally have some time after DevCon to look through the longer questions / posts on this plattform again (and Roxana also had contacted me about this issue this week).

I have not seen similar behaviour before myself. I too consider the missing rethrow of the RuntimeException case a programming mistake, though the only consequence of this is a missing "error" log entry and missing stacktrace information about the real exception - the response to the client will look exactly the same as for the other catch-clauses.

I'd personally patch that rethrow into the specific version of webscripts used in 5.2.4, run with that and then check the stacktrace. Alternative - in a dirtier approach - I'd use remote debugging with a breakpoint in that catch clause.

Since I don't see any TRACE output from the copyResponseStreamOutput method, I expect the RuntimeException to be triggered in that method, though I can see no readily apparent errors / relevant corner cases in that code.

It is actually a known issue and already fixed for the next 5.2.X service pack: MNT-19933

Still unclear though how this was not caught in testing with dozens of requests issued by the browser failing and access logs showing 500er errors...

One reason it may not have been caught in testing is that SSO was not being used. When SSO is not enabled, the proxy should actually append an "alf_ticket=sdfghj" query fragment to the URL, so the specific condition for the NullPointerException does not trigger.

Axel, you are great. Thanks for finding the root cause of the issue. I owe you a beer!!

I had patched the class with my own version to log the error correctly, but in this case the error was not happening anymore, so I was not sure what really happened...

Thank you!

Possible solution until the hotfix is out (tested): go back to 5.2.3.
