Nodejs: Authentification with Jazz RTC failed

Amadou Beye (111) | asked Nov 30 '18, 6:53 a.m.

 I'm trying to sign in with jazz rtc api but I always get  302 FOUND

Acually I'm converting a java project to Nodejs. On java the authentification works great with this:

HttpPost postFormRequest = new HttpPost(host + "/auth/j_security_check");
List<BasicNameValuePair> nvps = new ArrayList<BasicNameValuePair>();
nvps.add(new BasicNameValuePair("j_username", rtcLogin));
nvps.add(new BasicNameValuePair("j_password", rtcPassword));
postFormRequest.setEntity(new UrlEncodedFormEntity(nvps, "UTF-8"));
HttpResponse postFormResponse = client.execute(postFormRequest);

Now in Nodejs I'm trying this:

const host = '';
const rtcAuthPath = '/auth/j_security_check';
const credentials = { j_username: 'login', j_password: '**' };
const authOptions = {
    url: host + rtcAuthPath,
    body: JSON.stringify(credentials)

function auth(error, response, body){ log(response); }, auth);

These two pieces of code seems to do the same thing but only the java one works.
What's wrong with the code in Nodejs ?
Note that host have same value in java and nodejs

 You should ask questions like this on stackoverflow. This is a programming question and does not have anything to do with the tools as far as I know.

Your nodeJS does at least not properly encode the URL and data. See the Java code:
postFormRequest.setEntity(new UrlEncodedFormEntity(nvps, "UTF-8"));

 I finally found a solution:

let identityOptions = {
    url: rtcHost + '/authenticated/identity',
    jar: request.jar()
const authentificationOptions = {
    form = formurlencoded({ j_username: loginj_password: password }, 'utf8'),
    followAllRedirects: true,  // for FORM based authentication
    strictSSL: false,
    url: rtcHost + '/jts/j_security_check',
    jar: request.jar(),
    headers: {
        'Content-Type': 'application/x-www-form-urlencoded;charset=UTF-8',
        'X-Requested-With': 'XMLHttpRequest'
return new Promise(function (resolvereject) { (errorresponsebody) {
        // User is authenticated, then return OK
        if (body && JSON.stringify(body).includes(login)) return resolve(200);
        // User should authenticate (errorresponsebody) {
            if (body && JSON.stringify(body).includes(login.toUpperCase())) {
                return resolve(200);
            return reject(response ? response.statusCode : 400);
