Description of problem:
Few links are not working on Mashup portlet on dashboard
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
JBoss Operations Network
Version : 3.2.0.ER6
Build Number : f7dcd50:643508a
GWT Version : 2.5.0
SmartGWT Version : 3.0p
Browser: Firefox 17.0.7 ESR (RHEL 6.4 x64)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to dashboard (Mashup portlet)
2. On Mashup click on the link "Downloads"
3. Bottom of the page on the section "System Management", click the following links, it displays blank.
- [Red Hat CloudForms], https://rhn.redhat.com/rhn/software/channel/downloads/Download.do?cid=20037
- [Red Hat JBoss Operations Network], https://access.redhat.com/jbossnetwork/restricted/listSoftware.html
- [Red Hat Network Satellite], https://rhn.redhat.com/rhn/software/channels/All.do
Should display actual page
this is caused by the fact that those URLs:
are actually redirects to some other page where the AuthN happens if not signed in
curl -I https://rhn.redhat.com/rhn/software/channel/downloads/Download.do?cid=20037
HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily
we use the HTMLPane SmartGWT component for the Mashup portlet. At the end of the day it is translated into the common iframe element. Unfortunately there is no way to make the iframe behave correctly (to follow the 302 redirects)
This bug is trivially fixed because of the fact the Mashup portlet was removed from JON. See bug 1123977 for more details.
As a consequence, there are no commits for this bug and therefore no need to cherry-picking.
Moving to ON_QA as available to test in the following brew build:
In comment 3 I wrote: "Mashup portlet was removed". This is not true. Only the content of the Mashup portlet was replaced with own html page including some links:
* Product Landing Page
* Product Documentation
* Release Notes
And some of the new features in latest version - not yet implemented.
Links open new a browser tab. Therefore no need for AuthN inside iframed page.
i am seeing an incorrect link for "product documentation". it is linking to jon 3.2 doc ...and not jon 3.3.
This is because the 3.3 docs have yet to be generated and placed into official docs. Assigning this to Heiko because he is assigned to Bug 880359.
Doing what was mentioned in comment 8 ^
Moving into ER05 as didn't make the ER04 cut.
can you please provide the links to the final content for the Mashup portlet as described in comment#5 ?
