Re: [controller-dev] [infrautils-dev] credentials for REST to jolokia/exec/org.opendaylight.infrautils.diagstatus

Ryan Goulding <ryandgoulding@...>

for carbon-sr3 we still hadn't integrated jolokia with AAA;  it was still backed by etc/org.jolokia.osgi.cfg, hencewhy you need to use admin/admin after changing the password in AAA.

How did you install jolokia in Fluorine?  You must install using "odl-jolokia" feature from controller to get protection.  Standard off the shelf "jolokia" has NO auth by default...

I don't have access to my setup at the moment. I can later.

but, I think it's based on carbon sr3.

I do have a recent (2/27) snapshot distro from Fluorine though,
and that actually doesn't even need creds to access that
jolokia diagstatus endpoint. restconf still behaves like I
expect, but the diagstatus endpoint takes any (or no)
username/password combo.

Jamo, can you comment on code version?  Thanks!

    What version of code? This wasn’t tied to AAA until oxygen. Prior it was controlled by etc/or.jolokia.osgi.cfg.

        Hi Utility folks,

        I noticed in a local setup I have where I've changed the default username
        and password for RESTCONF, that I still need to use the admin:admin creds
        to hit the diagstatus endpoint.

        I'm guessing that's just because this is not tied in to the magic of
        AAA and/or RESTCONF creds.

        Gotta just live with it, or would it be an easy thing to add, just to keep
        things more intuitive?

    This seems like a bug (bad one, security wise), but it's not for infrautils-dev - we don't actually do anything
    re. Jolokia in project infrautils, the diagstatus sub-module simply exposes a JMX bean... the code related to the
    Jolokia integration in ODL which then make makes this available via HTTP, and secures it with the AAA creds (also
    used by RESTCONF; there are no creds in RESTCONF itself FYI), is actually in controller and/or aaa (I'm not 100%
    sure myself what is where)... see
    <> and

    If you are right, we have this problem (that when changing the default username and password you can still use the
    previous one) on *ALL* /jolokia/ URLs, I'm guessing.

    Would you like to open a (Critical?) bug in JIRA against AAA about this?
