I get "InvalidAuthenticityToken" on performing most actions

Hi,
We are trying out On-demand.

  • I’ve installed on-demand on a test cluster.
  • I have set up LDAP authentication and set up the (local) slurm cluster (OOD runs on the cluster’s headnode)
  • I can log in as “george” and see existing jobs that I have submitted from the command-line

The issue: Most operations (e.g. delete a job) return a 422 error and the logs mention
“Can’t verify CSRF token authenticity.”
and ActionController::InvalidAuthenticityToken.
(see log output below)

Any pointers? Is there a way to get more detailed logging?

Many thanks!
George.

Logged in as “george” and looking under /var/log/ondemand-nginx/george/error.log I find the following:

Hi and welcome! Are you using a proxy of some kind? The issue is the token is generated with scheme://host:port (and maybe path?) on the server side. So if you connect through proxy (a different host) it may be throwing this error.

Thanks for the reply!
No proxy, but we do have to go through a 1-1 NAT for internet access though. To your knowledge, is there a requirement for reverse-DNS to work? (i.e. hostname->IP and IP->hostname to be consistent).

I will keep at this. This is the kind of thing we have been looking for for a long time!

Thanks again,
g.

I have a similar situation; I can’t create a job.

And the log is same as @georgets

“Create From Default Template” option has the same result, too.

Hi I just updated a similar issue on our Github. Please see it for steps to remediate.

Hello @jeff.ohrstrom ;
Unfortunately, My problem is still there!

I tested both of your solutions for /var/www/ood/apps/sys/dashboard/config/initializers/session_store.rb ; Stop and start the httpd24-httpd; Login to OOD but create a job from template, for instance, shows up the page I uploaded in my previous reply.

Sorry! That ticket edited the dashboard app for the same issue. I didn’t realize you’re looking at the job composer (myjobs)

Edit the file in the same way as the ticket, only you’ll note it’s in the directory for myjobs app.
