Summary
Authentication forwarding won’t work with publish service
Type
Bug
Raised by
dg?
Date opened
Tuesday, 9 August 2005
Description
PDFing pages which require authentication to view them currently works by forwarding cookies sent to the mkpdf script to PmWiki. But if mkpdf is running on a different server, then it won’t see the cookies set by PmWiki for authentication purposes.

Proposed solution
Change the page typeset option to use the format=makepdf option, so all pdf requests use the same mechanism to get the the server. Then pass the authentication credentials as part of the redirect to the Wikipublisher service, via the Submit form.
Urgency

Status
Closed
Resolution
Should now be fixed — a credentials cookie reference is passed as part of the submission form.
