Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version :	
Build Number :	

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in to your rhq server 
2. open a new browser tab and go to the url of your rhq server (http://<yourRHQserver>:7080)

Actual results:
A login page is shown for a while (~ 1-2 seconds) and then you are redirected to http://<yourRHQserver>:7080/coregui/

Expected results:
Login page should not be visible when you are already logged in.

Comment 1 Jirka Kremser 2014-05-15 12:50:09 UTC
A) It's not "~ 1-2 seconds" but couple milliseconds on my laptop

B) One should access "http://<yourRHQserver>:7080/coregui/" instead of "http://<yourRHQserver>:7080/" that contains a redirect to "http://<yourRHQserver>:7080/coregui/login" (that's why you see the login page for a moment)

C) It is a trade-off between the two following situations, lets call them I and II.

I. having this redirect as the current implementaion has, i.e. 
 * when not logged in it is 1 redirect (/ -> /coregui/login)
 * when logged in: 2 redirects (/ -> /coregui/login -> /coregui)

II. having it vice-versa, i.e.
 * when not logged in: 2 redirects (/ -> /coregui/ -> /coregui/login)
 * when logged in: 1 redirect (/ -> /coregui/)

I would appreciate any input here.

To some extent, I agree, it can be done by II scenario. Code-wise it is a 1 liner, but then there will be 2 redirects when user is not logged in. The login process is simply different as it was before, because there is a new pure-HTML page because of the PatternFly LnF.

Either way, I is a minor one.

Comment 2 Jirka Kremser 2014-05-15 13:01:40 UTC
The current impl. has 1 significant flaw that is the blue screen which blinks during the 2-redirects scenario.

The suggested approach (II) does the same, but the intermediate page is blank, so it is less evil to me.
