Log-in expires after logging-in somewhere else



  • After logging-in on devnet at work makes me have to login back at home each time an visa verse.
    Didn't happen before, anybody else with the same issue (just in case before submitting a bug)?



  • Indeed yes I have noticed this the last few days too.


  • Moderators

    Yes, I have noticed as well. However, was not sure, if the "feature" is meant to work this way.



  • Yes, I noticed that I have to re-login now and then!



  • I've mentioned this on IRC and Marius and gang are looking into it.

    May be it is relateted to cookies and sessions. But please mind that we should think for security as well to usability :)



  • Thank you for reporting this

    I am on it, I will get as soon as possible on this.



  • Yay! Gurudutt the bug squasher is on it! ;-)



  • This issue is almost fixed and under observation at the moment.

    Login session should be 2 weeks long now, if your session expires in less than 14 days please let me know.



  • Cool. Thanks Gurudutt. I'll keep an eye on it.

    Gurudutt,

    just for clarification. Is it possible to be logged in at 2 PC at the same time?

    I guess the whole discussion started that people had to log in alternating at work and at home. Assuming that the other PC is not running, this will result not in simultaneous logins at QtDev.

    However, I have a laptop and my desktop side by side. I have log into devnat at the laptop without a problem presumably because the desktop was in energy saving mode. When going back to the desktop, I was not logged in anymore. However, the laptop is still running. So this would be 2 simultaneous logins.

    Yes



  • I'm usually logged in with 2-4 browsers at any given time, this issue is probably due to a change in timeout settings when we upgraded the base CMS. Gurudutt has deployed a fix to the live servers so please keep an eye out.

    Hi,

    Here is my observation.

    I visited devnet about 3 hours ago. I'm sure I selected "keep me logged in for 2 weeks" and yet , 3 hours later I have to type in again my password on the same system.

    Something has changed the last couple of days since I didn't have to log in as much before. hope this helps.



  • Hi,

    similar for me. I was logged in last day evening at work, with the check box set, came home to my other PC (work was shut down) and logged in there.
    Today back in work, I had to log in again :-(



  • Yep, I got the same this morning, we will do some more checking.



  • For me its a different problem, in Google Crome it does not log-in automatically. I opens log-in page with username and password shown and I need to press "Login" every time.

    Is it some problem / feature of Crome ???

    On every single page? (should not happen) Or per browser session? (this is the bug we are working on fixing now)



  • it is per browser session.. not for every single page :)



  • I did some changes and it is still under observation for now.
    Please keep eye on it and as soon you see this issue again then please let me know.



  • Had the same problem with Firefox. Works now.


  • Moderators

    Looks ok here.



  • Seems fine in chrome (windows/linux)



  • I had a strange issue here, logged in a noon, did not do anything so my PC went to sleep. When I woke it up againnow and refreshed the pagge, I tried to open the unread posts and then I was logged out....

    I'm using Firefox on Win7...



  • Just came to office and tried to log-in. "NO" automatic log-in happened, but username and password are auto-filled in and I had to press log-in ...

    Yesterday couple of times wrong password auto-filled in to the password filed when I tried to log-in, I got credentials error and I had to type in the password to log-in.

    The auto-fill of username and password is a browser feature working on data from local storage. If you log in with the correct credentials the browser should offer to store the updated credentials.

    Just to clarify if this is working as intended:

    • I usually use the "new_topic_search link":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/new_topic_search to enter the QDN.
    • It then presents me a list of active topics and the login box on the right side.
    • I then tick "keep logged in" and log in.
    • I get redirected to a page which states "no posts matched your query", although the profile says there are several new posts.
    • If I then use the same link again it correctly presents the new posts.
    • If I close the browser and re-open it, I have to re-login instead of beeing logged in and the procedure starts over.

    I'm quite sure this behaviour is new since the last update (before I was kept logged in and the new_topic_search link led directly to the new posts).

    I'm on Windows 7 64 / Firefox 5.



  • Hi Marius,

    I was also logged out on my work PC. It was logged in on friday when I left. In between I logged in from home... Should that work and keep my working PC logged in or not?



  • Gerolf, if you have selected "Keep me logged in for two weeks" on last friday then you must be logged in today as well, I did the same as you did and I am logged in at 3 different computer and when I came back to office today and I am still logged in.

    Thank you Lukas Geyer for steps, I am trying to reproduce it here.

    Hi

    I see when you are browsing "posts since last visit" as a anonymous user
    and after that if log in at that page then after login it redirects to previous search, but that search results were for "anonymous user" and now you are logged as different user and that's why it dosen't return any result, also when you goes back then basically you go back in your browser and you see you are not logged in, but if you click on any other link then you are actually logged in, this is expected behaviour.



  • Makes sense.

    Probably it would be more intuitive to just re-execute the query as it would reflect the expected behaviour. However, I see that this leads to some technical difficulties.

    Hi Gurudutt,

    I always set this option, but was not logged in anymore... :-(


  • Moderators

    Hi Gurudutt,

    I have switched to my laptop yesterday. My account was logged out. This morning I started my desktop. Again I had to log in. I set also always the keep option. :-(



  • For me, it currently seems to work.



  • This issue is fixed and it is working fine as expected here.

    If you are still getting this issue, probably you might have to clear browser cache for this and try again.


  • Moderators

    Hi Gurudutt
    Thanks for feedback. I will keep an eye on it and come back, if it persists.


  • Moderators

    Hi Gurudutt

    the problem is still there. After your last reply I have cleared all cache/temporary files and logged in again. When accessing the QtDevNet first time in a day I have to log in again. This happened definitely twice, yesterday and today.

    I am working on win7 64 bit with Chrome 12.0.742.122
