Description Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2012-04-02 15:21:57 UTC
Since the security patch,3434 , the API has a broken test :

 php tests/phpunit/phpunit.php tests/phpunit/includes/api/ApiBlockTest.php
 1) ApiBlockTest::testMakeNormalBlock
 UsageException: Invalid token
Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2012-04-02 15:22:55 UTC
Marking high priority since that makes the API tests job to always be failing.
Comment 2 Sam Reed (reedy) 2012-04-02 18:09:01 UTC
User.php, it's the request specific tokens at fault

	 * Check given value against the token value stored in the session.
	 * A match should confirm that the form was submitted from the
	 * user's own login session, not a form submission from a third-party
	 * site.
	 * @param $val String Input value to compare
	 * @param $salt String Optional function-specific data for hashing
	 * @param $request WebRequest object to use or null to use $wgRequest
	 * @return Boolean: Whether the token matches
	public function matchEditToken( $val, $salt = '', $request = null ) {
		$sessionToken = $this->getEditToken( $salt, $request );
		if ( $val != $sessionToken ) {
			wfDebug( "User::matchEditToken: broken session data\n" );
		return $val == $sessionToken;

Commenting out the pass of $request (so it falls back to null) fixes the issue.

We've got discrepancy between code - the gettoken part of block passes the request, but prop=info doesn't, but the api itself does

		// Die if token required, but not provided (unless there is a gettoken parameter)
		$salt = $module->getTokenSalt();
		if ( $salt !== false && !isset( $moduleParams['gettoken'] ) ) {
			if ( !isset( $moduleParams['token'] ) ) {
				$this->dieUsageMsg( array( 'missingparam', 'token' ) );
			} else {
				if ( !$this->getUser()->matchEditToken( $moduleParams['token'], $salt, $this->getRequest() ) ) {
					$this->dieUsageMsg( 'sessionfailure' );

So the question is about the requests. Where should we be passing it, and where shouldn't we?

I guess the request in the block/unblock should be removed to normalise them with the prop=info one. And then do the same in ApiMain::setupModule (ie not pass $this->request)

Comment 5 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2012-04-03 12:33:10 UTC
Another way, which only run the ApiBlockTest::testMakeNormalBlock test :

ssh gallium
sudo -s -u jenkins
cd /var/lib/jenkins/jobs/MediaWiki-GIT-Fetching/workspace


php tests/phpunit/phpunit.php \
  --conf /var/lib/jenkins/jobs/MediaWiki-Tests-API/workspace/LocalSettings.php \

1) ApiBlockTest::testMakeNormalBlock
UsageException: Invalid token
Comment 6 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2012-04-03 13:09:30 UTC
Test marked as broken with  so I can continue the Jenkins/Gerrit integration.

I am not sure what is the issue there, but it is certainly reproducible on gallium :/

Comment 10 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2012-04-06 08:40:58 UTC
The test has been enabled again by . I have had PHPUnit upgraded from 3.5.x to 3.6.10, maybe that helped fixing the issue we had. Or another changed fixed it.
