using alfresco-js-api in the browser, I can only login using the ecm-ticket in the constructor

Jump to solution

I'm using an AngularJS (1.6) SPA with the alfresco-js-api directly in the browser.

Thought I should be able to login with a valid ticket using 

var ticket="XXXXXXXXXXXXX"; //valid ticket inside
var alfrescoApiInst = new AlfrescoApi({ provider:'ECM' });
alfrescoApiInst.loginTicket(ticket).then(function (data) {
             console.log('valid ticket you are logged in');
         }, function (error) {
             console.error(error);
         });
‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

but this is not working.

But using the ticket in the constructor works

var alfrescoApiInst=new AlfrescoApi({ticketEcm:ticket,hostEcm:hostUrl,provider:"ECM"});
   

It works with the constructor, but did I miss anything or got it totally wrong?

Hi Martin,

I opened an issue for you :

loginTicket(ticket) 400 response · Issue #209 · Alfresco/alfresco-js-api · GitHub 

please refer to it for further update.

In the meantime, I suggest you use constructor way.

Hi Francesco,

I obtain the ticket through a alfresco web-script that returns a javascript object (template):

alfUserData={
"ticket":"${sessionticket.ticket}",
"firstName":"${person.properties.firstName}",
"lastName":"${person.properties.lastName}",
"userName":"${person.properties.userName}",
"email":"${person.properties.email}"
};

this is loaded as script before the angularJs app and called via wcs to use the configured SSO mechanism.

<script src="alfresco/wcs/autoticket"></script>

so I avoid the fiddling with the asynchrony and I have a valid global (initial) ticket before starting the next javascript.  

But when using the loginTicket(ticket) there is an internal-error on calling the "loginTicket" method:

alfresco-js-api.min.js:6 OPTIONS http://127.0.0.1:8080/alfresco/api/-default-/public/authentication/versions/1/tickets/-me- 401 (Unauthorized)

Calling the constructor with the ticket is ok. But I fear I really missunderstood something.

I have to say, in this case I'm not on nodeJs, it's just a SPA hosted on the alfresco site.

...and now I see alfresco-js-api.min.js is calling the host http://127.0.0.1:8080  but it should call http://dms - and because I also run an alfresco locally this gives the unauthorized error - the ticket is not valid for another alfresco system Smiley Happy 

But everything is initialized with url http://dms - is http://127.0.0.1:8080 hardcoded in the js-api or am I missing just the ecmhost parameter...

Didn't recognize the wrong 127.0.0.1 before...

Happy Office hours
