I wasn't able to get change-password to work on Python reg/sreg. syncreg/controllers/user.py:change_password() is missing a proxy line. i tried adding it, but it keeps getting 401 Unauthorized from the proxy. The proxy line added was: def change_password(self, request): """Changes the user e-mail""" if self.app.config.get('auth.proxy'): return self._proxy(request) The full transmission to sreg with a simply proxy line added is: POST /user/1.0/tecl6j3lujzcgmz4f4vv5yka3cxcdgkc/password HTTP/1.1 Accept-Encoding: identity Content-Length: 16 X-Forwarded-For: 10.250.64.84 Connection: close User-Agent: Python-urllib/2.6 Host: weave-stage-sreg01 Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded And the response is "401 Unauthorized".
Response: HTTP/1.1 401 Unauthorized Server: gunicorn/0.11.2 Date: Fri, 24 Dec 2010 12:14:46 GMT Connection: close WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm=\"Sync\" Content-Length: 253 Content-Type: text/plain 401 Unauthorized This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document you requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser does not understand how to supply the credentials required.
If it helps any, delete-account works fine.
The 401 is unrelated and your patch looks good: a proxy call was missing. I am fixing this and check that it works in -dev. Will follow-up on the 401 next
The problem was located and fixed -- The proxy calls are not covered by the tests -- although I will add in the old functional test suite a test for this, as it is running on the -dev stack so it's able to exercise the proxy (via hudson) Fixes: - the proxy function needs to pass the auth header: http://hg.mozilla.org/services/server-core/rev/96249a5d025a - the password change in the backend was not converting the right using md5: http://hg.mozilla.org/services/server-core/rev/2b0d7e7787d9 - the proxy, as you noticed was missing: http://hg.mozilla.org/services/server-reg/rev/0a30905af825 I controlled that it works properly in dev and notify the result here.
Deployed hg tip to staging, change password works now
