API error or expected?

Post by BiloxiGeek » Mon Sep 24, 2018 4:36 pm

I've got some perl scripts I've used just to futz around with the API a bit here and there. Since updating to 1.32.0 I'm seeing some errors that I don't believe were there before the update.

When deleting an event via the API using

Code: Select all

curl -b /root/cookies.txt --silent --insecure -XDELETE  https://server/zm/api/events/<EventID>.json
I see this in /var/log/zoneminder/cake_error.log:

Code: Select all

2018-09-23 06:11:55 Error: [UnauthorizedException] Not Authenticated
Request URL: /zm/api/monitors/index/Type%20!=:WebSite.json
Stack Trace:
#0 /usr/share/zoneminder/www/api/app/Controller/MonitorsController.php(23): AppController->beforeFilter()
#1 [internal function]: MonitorsController->beforeFilter(Object(CakeEvent))
#2 /usr/share/zoneminder/www/api/lib/Cake/Event/CakeEventManager.php(243): call_user_func(Array, Object(CakeEvent))

#6 /usr/share/zoneminder/www/api/app/webroot/index.php(108): Dispatcher->dispatch(Object(CakeRequest), Object(CakeResponse))
#7 {main}
I have authenticated and the event does get deleted but I see this block of log every time regardless.

I am unable to reproduce this.

Are you sure that the line comes from your event deletion? I can't see any reason for it to redirect to the Monitors view with a WebSite type filter.

It looks like I'm seeing quite a few lines of errors whenever I try something via curl and the API. For example, just pulling events.json I get quite a few lines of seemingly errors before the json data:

First I authenticate using:

Code: Select all

curl --silent --insecure -d "username=useid&password=password&action=login&view=console" -c /root/cookies.txt https://hostname/zm/index.php -o /dev/null
That correctly generates a fresh cookies.txt file. Then I pull a list of events with:

Code: Select all

curl -b /root/cookies.txt -XGET --silent --insecure https://hostname/zm/api/events.json
I would expect to see the json data and nothing else but I get quite a few lines of other stuff first.

Code: Select all

All that preceeds the events.json output that I expect to see. The json data is normal and valid but all those error lines are confusing a perl script that used to work just fine.

Re: API error or expected?

Tried pulling up one event via API using https://hostname/zm/api/events/14003.json

Got some errors and then the expected result:

Code: Select all

Notice (8): Use of undefined constant ZM_DB_SSL_CA_CERT - assumed 'ZM_DB_SSL_CA_CERT' [CORE/Cake/Model/ConnectionManager.php, line 69]

Notice (8): Use of undefined constant ZM_DB_SSL_CLIENT_KEY - assumed 'ZM_DB_SSL_CLIENT_KEY' [CORE/Cake/Model/ConnectionManager.php, line 69]

Notice (8): Use of undefined constant ZM_DB_SSL_CLIENT_CERT - assumed 'ZM_DB_SSL_CLIENT_CERT' [CORE/Cake/Model/ConnectionManager.php, line 69]

Warning (2): filesize() [<a href='http://php.net/function.filesize'>function.filesize</a>]: stat failed for /var/lib/zoneminder/events/105/2018-09-25/14003/ [APP/Model/Event.php, line 137]

{ "event": { "Event": { "Id": "14003"
Normal json output continued beyond this point.

[SOLVED] Re: API error or expected?

Added these lines to /etc/zm/zm.conf and no longer getting the errors. There is a .rpmnew version of the file but the actual zm.conf file never got those lines during the update to 1.32.x. That apparently was the missing piece.

Code: Select all

# SSL CA certificate for ZoneMinder database
ZM_DB_SSL_CA_CERT=

# # SSL client key for ZoneMinder database
ZM_DB_SSL_CLIENT_KEY=

# # SSL client cert for ZoneMinder database
ZM_DB_SSL_CLIENT_CERT=
API calls work as expected now. zmNinja on iPhone and iPad are back to normal as well.
