Hi there!

To reduce project dependency on 3rd party paid services the StackStorm TSC has decided to move the Q/A from this forum to Github Discussions. This will make user experience better integrated with the native Github flow, as well as the questions closer to the community where they can provide answers.

Trying to redirect to the WebUI and provide a default username and password as part of the url, shortening the url because I have limited real estate to display it

I am trying to encode the stackstorm web ui link (shorten it [without using the st2-api-key] with the stackstorm id sending it to a proxy where it will populate the default observer username and password and automatically go directly to the history of the stackstormId, however, that is proving to be harder than I thought. How can I accomplish this. Here is what I am using as a proxy that passes the stackstormId in, but I am unable to get the login to accept this, what am I missing? I have a default user and password for the observer…

doing this in php + curl


$username = "devOps-obs***r";
$password = "*******";

        $stackstormId = escapeshellcmd($_GET['stackstormId']);
        $secretpage = "https://******$stackstormId";
        $secretpage = "https://******";
                $ch = curl_init();
                curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, TRUE);
                curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $secretpage);
                curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_STDERR, $verbose);
                curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, FALSE);
                curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, FALSE);
                curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, true);
                curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS, 4);
                curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "$username:$password");
                curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
                curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array(
                                        'Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate',
                                        'Accept: */*',
                                        'User-Agent: python-requests/2.11.1',
                                        'Connection: keep-alive',
                                        'content-type: application/json'
                $curl_result = curl_exec($ch);
                // $output contains the output string
                $output = curl_exec($ch);
                echo $output;
                // close curl resource to free up system resources

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The authentication mechanism doesn’t work that way - it’s not just a basic auth. You need to authenticate against the /auth service, get a token, then use that.

See the curl calls here: Authentication — StackStorm 2.9.1 documentation

Those return a token, which is then used for further connections.
