Curl / login_engine /user_engine

Anyone ever use curl with user_engine before? Even though I say

curl -uuser:pass

it doesn’t seem to login.

Presumably curl will use HTTP Authentication, whereas the login engine
doesn’t support this…

If you browse to your site in a browser and log in, then inspect
your cookie and copy the session id out of it you can use that in
your curl command to get thru the auth.

curl http://localhost:3000/foo/bar/12?
session_id=dkjfh;dfh;ef;kladf;adj;fjadlk;fjad;fhadjkshfakdshf # or
whatever it is.

also I am not sure if its _sessionid or sessions_id. look at what the
key is in the cookie and use that.

That seemed to work for GET, but not for POST. I get a redirect from
user_engine when using

curl -i -X POST -d “<xml_data>”
http://?_session_id=01234567890

If I use the command above without the post and the xml data, I get
back the GET data I am expecting. If it was a routing issue, I would
expect the GET not to work.I also removed the -i, but no difference.

I’m using

if request.post?

end
if request.get?

end

in the controller, request.get? works fine.

In the development.log file, when I do the GET, the session id
displayed is the same as the param value

Session ID: ABC
Parameters: {"_session_id"=>“ABC”, “action”=>…

but in the POST I see they are different:

Session ID: DEF
Parameters: {"_session_id"=>“ABC”, “action”=>…

Where the session id DEF is different from the session that had worked
previously.

Why is user engine generating a new session for POST?
