POST Authorization header to Basic over SSL not working

Hi,

 

We are trying to protect a realm using a standard basic over SSL authentication scheme. The intention here is to make authentication 'automatically' by sending the Authorization header directly to the credential collector via GET/POST requests.

 

This is working perfectly with GET-requests, where we set the right authorization header and get the right cookies back.

 

When doing the same with POST-requests we just receive the following error in tracefiles:

 

[08:46:23][12015][3558405888][CSmCredentialManager.cpp:222][CSmCredentialManager::GatherAdvancedAuthCredentials][IP Address][][hostname][test/][][Calling SM_WAF_HTTP_PLUGIN->ProcessAdvancedAuthCredentials.]

 

[08:46:23][12015][3558405888][SmSCC.cpp:418][SmScc::getCredentials][IP Adress][][hostname][test/][][Success in collecting credentials.]

 

[08:46:23][12015][3558405888][SmSCC.cpp:444][SmScc::getCredentials][IP Address][][hostname][test/][][Failed to obtain post data.]

And in Weblog:

 

[12015/3558405888][CSmCredentialManager.cpp:251][ERROR][sm-AgentFramework-00460] HLA: Analyzer from module 'SM_WAF_HTTP_PLUGIN' returned unknown response code '-1' for component 'Credential Manager'.

[12015/3558405888][CSmHighLevelAgent.cpp:1108][ERROR][sm-AgentFramework-00420] HLA: Component reported fatal error: 'Credential Manager'.

 

Any suggestions ??

 

Best regards,

Michael
