Description Lukas Krejci 2011-12-05 09:20:15 EST
Description of problem:

A user without MANAGE_SETTINGS is unable to log in in the CLI.  This holds true for both the interactive console as well as the scripts.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ bin/rhq-cli.sh
2. unconnected> login <limited-user> <password>


1. $ bin/rhq-cli.sh --host <RHQ-hostname> --user <limited-user> --password <password>


1. $ bin/rhq-cli.sh --host <RHQ-hostname> --user <limited-user> --password <password> -f any-script.js

a script test.js with contents:

rhq.login("<limite-user>", "<password>");


1. $ bin/rhq-cli.sh -f test.js

Actual results:
All of the above give an error about the user not having MANAGE_SETTINGS and give up on logging in.

Expected results:
The user logs in and everything works as expected.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Lukas Krejci 2011-12-05 09:29:38 EST
Note that the failure is purely because of the fact that the CLI wants to print out the version of the server it has connected to and fails, because the method it uses to find that out requires MANAGE_SETTINGS.

This is the same problem as bug 694892.  The fix looks good.
Comment 7 Sunil Kondkar 2011-12-06 05:49:08 EST
Verified in Jon3GA-2 build.

Created a user 'testuser' without MANAGE_SETTINGS.

Tried below commands in CLI and verified that testuser is able to login successfully:

1. [root@suniltest rhq-remoting-cli-4.2.0.JON300.GA]# bin/rhq-cli.sh
RHQ - RHQ Enterprise Remote CLI 4.2.0.JON300.GA
unconnected$ login testuser redhat
Remote server version is: 3.0.0.GA (e23441b:1ca6ad9)
Login successful

2. [root@suniltest rhq-remoting-cli-4.2.0.JON300.GA]# bin/rhq-cli.sh --host suniltest.usersys.redhat.com --user testuser --password redhat
RHQ - RHQ Enterprise Remote CLI 4.2.0.JON300.GA
Remote server version is: 3.0.0.GA (e23441b:1ca6ad9)
Login successful

3. Executed a script as below:
[root@suniltest rhq-remoting-cli-4.2.0.JON300.GA]# bin/rhq-cli.sh --host suniltest.usersys.redhat.com --user testuser --password redhat -f testscript.js 
Remote server version is: 3.0.0.GA (e23441b:1ca6ad9)
Login successful
Test Output from script execution!
[root@suniltest rhq-remoting-cli-4.2.0.JON300.GA]#

4. Created a test.js file with below content:

rhq.login("testuser", "redhat");

Executed as below:

[root@suniltest rhq-remoting-cli-4.2.0.JON300.GA]# bin/rhq-cli.sh -f test.js 
Remote server version is: 3.0.0.GA (e23441b:1ca6ad9)
[root@suniltest rhq-remoting-cli-4.2.0.JON300.GA]# 

Marking verified as it is working as expected.
