    Error message "CSRF Violation occurred"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21

    Problem Symptoms:
    Adding the token validation with "TOKEN-VALIDATION=Y" in $alephe_tab/tab100 and updating the required html-files with the $9900 place holder as hidden parameter does not bring the expected result but runs into error message "CSRF Violation occurred. Please re-login into the system." when trying to delete records from My e-shelf or when trying to use the *Renew All* functionality.


    In some of the tables which should be enhanced by a line like ...
    <input type=hidden name="token_id" value=$9900>
    ... according to documentation the line is missing.

    Compare your local files with the standard file in a-tree.

    Additional Information

    CSRF Valuation was implemented in Aleph 21. Please see "Aleph System Librarian's Guide - Web Opac", chapter 25.2
