  69209   Wed Sep 2 10:24:58 2020 Question Florian Feldbauerflorian@ep1.ruhr-uni-bochum.deQuestionLinux3.1.3Using curl to post new entries

Hey,

i'm trying to use curl to post new entries to our logbook as described here: https://elog.psi.ch/elogs/Forum/68597.
The Elog is installed via the Deban package on Buster.
I created a test logbook with attributes Author, Type, Category and Subject.

curl -u florian:foobaa -F cmd=Submit -F Author=Florian -F Type=Diary -F Category=General -F Subject="testing curl" -F Text="foo baa" http://localhost:8080/test

<input type="password" class="login_input" name="upassword" onInput="document.getElementById('upassword').style.display='none';">
</span></td></tr>
<tr><td align=center class="login_form"><input type=checkbox checked name=remember value=1>
Keep me logged in on this computer
for the next 31 days or until I log out</td></tr>
<tr><td align=center class="login_form">
<a href="?cmd=Forgot">Forgot password?</a></td></tr>
<tr><td align=center class="login_form_bottom"><input type="submit" class="login_submit" value="Submit"></td></tr></table>
<center><a class="bottomlink" title="Goto ELOG home page" href="https://midas.psi.ch/elog/">ELOG V3.1.3-7933898</a></center></form></body></html>

 

As you can see, curl only prints the login page of the logbook and no new entry has been created. Any suggestions what might go worng here?

Regards,
Florian

A new RPM has been released at https://elog.psi.ch/elog/download/RPMS/elog-3.1.4-2.el7.x86_64.rpm containing that fix.

I removed the version info from the 404 error, but you have to recompile elogd from sources. The fix will be included in the next RPM, but that can usually take a few weeks.

Hello,

We used the Elog RPM binary installation method to install Elog. Our security scanners are complaining that Elog discloses the version information when you hit a missing page (404 error).  How can I hide this version info? Is there a snippet of code somewhere that I can comment out?

Any help is appreciated.

Today I succeeded with the help of L.JR to produce a new RPM which contains SSL, KRB5, PAM and LDAP support. It's uploaded to https://elog.psi.ch/elog/download/RPMS/elog-3.1.4-2.el7.x86_64.rpm

Dear Stefan,

Thank you for your comment. I successfuly compiled the latest elog from source code, and now elogd could work with SSL.

In fact, I reported the case of installation with rpm file. Maybe, the latest elog rpm doesn't support SSL, I guess.
The installtion with rpm file is easier to build the common environment, so I hope the next rpm will support the SSL.

best regards,
Hisataka YOSHIDA

When you compile elog from the soruces, you need the OpenSSL library to be installed. The CMake build process will then find it and include it in the compile process. When you use the "make" build process, you have to make sure that SSL is enabled there:

USE_SSL = 1

To install the OpenSSL library, you can do on most systems something like "sudo yum install openssl-dev" or "sudo apt-get install openssl-dev"

Hello.

I installed the latest elog (3.1.4-2) in CentOS 7, and it is working well without SSL.
When I enalbled SSL option (SSL = 1) in the "elogd.cfg", and tried to start the elogd, the message below was shown and failed to run.

SSL support not compiled into elogd

If I switched the elog to older one (3.1.4-1), I could successeed to run the elogd with SSL option.
Is there any other option required in the latest elog to run with SSL? Or is this bug in the latest version?

Thank you,
Hisataka YOSHIDA

How are we supposed to give you a hint when you don't post your configuration?

usually I can make a lot of changes on my files .CFG But this time no way.

when I select one of the choice i've a text who appear with the right text (code), but only with this choice "Permis de verouillage et d'étiquetage 016685-68AF-0031"

the text appeared is false.

You should contact your local ELOG administrator.

Or you might want to rephrase you question: do you want to have this text added in the text field when selecting the field specifier?
How that can be done depends on your specific configuration. Since you are apparently already using a form in the text field, it might be tricky.

Thank you, Andreas!  Not sure why I kept overlooking it in the manual.  As for the number of entries when I sort, I'm not sure.  I'll set it up to display a larger number and see what happens.

Andreas Luedeke wrote:

It is described in the manual at https://elog.psi.ch/elog/config.html#general

Entries per page = <number>

Funnily the default is "20". I have no idea why you see 6 entries.

Hi,

I'm trying to use the Sort Attributes option to sort all entries by a user specified date.  The issue I'm running into, is that although I can get it to work, it seems to only display the last 6 entries that I'm sorting by.  If I click "All" to show all the entries, it's sorted perfectly. I'm using:

Sort Attributes = Due Date

Reverse sort = 0

Is there something I'm missing to get this working.  Reading through the manual nothing jumped out at me.
