Form based authentication issue using Firefox REST Client

Alexander Schinko (35511812) | asked Jan 25 '13, 10:55 a.m.

I tried to follow the steps in the OSLC Workshop however I don't not get properly authenticated at my server using the REST Client plugin.

If I try to get the rootservices catalogue it seems to work fine, however if I try to get any anyother service I get "authrequired" and a html body with content "Loading..." . The header looks like this:
  1. Status Code: 200 OK
  2. Cache-Control: private
  3. Content-Encoding: gzip
  4. Content-Length: 1174
  5. Content-Type: text/html;charset=UTF-8 ==> should be "rdf"
  6. Date: Fri, 25 Jan 2013 15:42:53 GMT
  7. Expires: Thu, 01 Jan 1970 01:00:00 CET
  8. Server: Apache-Coyote/1.1
  9. Set-Cookie: JSESSIONID=8241D10F956FCD1F85A00DA3F997FBE8; Path=/jazz; Secure JazzFormAuth=Form; Path=/jazz
  10. X-com-ibm-team-repository-web-auth-msg: authrequired
 I'm logged in properly, therefore there seems to be some problems with the form based FF10 and Rest Client Addon 2.0.4 on CLM 3.0.1.

Does anyone know a work arround?

Indeed the 3rd party cookies were disabled. After enabling it worked.

Please try first accessing the URL in the browser, and authenticate, then open the REST Client and it should work fine.

Hello Marc,

this is exactly what I have tried. Do I maybe have something wrong with my FF settings?
