    CAS integration does not return to portal

    Art Munro Novice
      I have completed the CAS integration and all goes well until return back to portal. (running Tomcat bundle on Ubuntu with Java 1.6)


      1. Access the Gatein portal and select “sign in”

      2. User is redirected to the CAS login page (all good)

      3. Enter credentials – root/gtn (all good)

      4. Authentication passess but the portal is not returned (all good)

      5. The URL is

      6. No portal is returned


      if for # 3 enter bad credentials the authentication fails.. so all looks good from CAS/Gatein..  Im just not logged into application






      No errors in Gatein logs but noticed..


      Sifting through the logs of CAS shows -


      2010-02-22 22:28:42,397 INFO [org.jasig.cas.authentication.AuthenticationManagerImpl] - <AuthenticationHandler: org.gatein.sso.cas.plugin.AuthenticationPlugin successfully authenticated the user which provided the following credentials: [username: root]>

        • 1. Re: CAS integration does not return to portal - Logging and Debug?

          Anyone know how to turn on more logging to see whats going on here?  We are so close to finalizing the integration but the last step is missing.  If we can turn on more logging we might be able to debug whats going on here but for now Im at a loss.


          All steps for Gatein server are complete and integration works well to CAS with success ticket being given out.


          Our CAS server is NOT co-located with the Gateing server... might be a problem in the code to process the URL

  to send back to the portal.


          Is this a CAS thing or a Gatein to send Browser back to the Portal?


          We are running on both Ubuntu 8 and have tried CAS 3.3.4  and 3.3.5

            ok.. Im not sure if this is linux issue or will affect Windows also but here is what i found...


            in order to have CAS return to login screen you need to add a "/" in the login.jsp and the window script...  see below..




            window.location = 'http://localhost:8888/cas/login?service=http://localhost:8080/portal/private/classic/';








            <script type="text/javascript">

            window.location = 'http://localhost:8888/cas/login?service=http://localhost:8080/portal/private/classic/';







            now this fixes the issue to return from CAS back to the portal...


            but now throwing a new error....
