[EP-tech] Re: Double Encoded URL

Hey Tim,


Just wanted to follow up and see you had any ideas about how we can solve this double encoding issue. Thanks again.

Hi Rob,


I've implemented CAS with EPrints a few times so I may be able to help.


Can you share some more details about how you've set things up?

Subject: [EP-tech] Double Encoded URL




We have recently tried to implement webserver authentication via CAS to our 3.3.14 development instance. We have it working to the point that when logging in it redirects to our CAS login page but the url is double encoded(see below) and because of the double encoding the redirect back to our eprints instance doesn’t occur. 




It seems that the CAS auth module is encoding it once and then eprints is then encoding it again.  Is there a way to get eprints to realize that the url has already been encoded and to not encode it again?
