[GeoNode-devel] geonode REST role service - Adminstrator role dropdown empty

Hi Alessio,

Thanks for the reply!

It looks like the /api endpoint on my geonode is accessible at http://localhost/ and not at http://localhost:8000/. Is this a problem?

I’ve configured the base URL of the Role Service to be just http://localhost/ but I still don’t see the ROLE_ADMIN user in the dropdowns.

GeoNode has a superuser configured with the username ‘admin’, it doesn’t have any groups though, do I need to create a group?

If I open up port 8000 in my apache2 config how would I go about changing the GeoNode api to be on port 8000? (is that actually necessary?)

the roles are taken from GeoNode.

You need to be sure that:

1. GeoServer can reach GeoNode
2. the base url of the role service is correctly pointing to GeoNode
3. GeoNode has either an admin user configured and groups

If still not working you can try to do some curl requests to GeoNode and see if it is correctly responding.

curl -X GET "http://localhost:8000/api/roles"

Hi all,

I’m configuring geonode/geoserver security using the tutorial here - http://docs.geonode.org/en/master/tutorials/admin/geoserver_geonode_security/

The problem I have is that when I create the ‘geonode REST role service’ both the ‘Administrator role’ and ‘Group administrator role’ dropdowns are empty – the tutorial suggests they should contain the value ROLE_ADMIN.

Any ideas where this ROLE_ADMIN should be configured in order to make it available in the dropdowns?
