    Restful APIs 403 forbidden error


    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20, 21, 22, 23
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care



    A "403 forbidden" error occurs in Restful APIs. 


    Aleph 22 AIK creates default server.xml file that includes the line: 
    <Valve className="org.apache.catalina.valves.RemoteAddrValve" allow="127\.0\.0\.1|10\.1\.49\.40"/> 
    This means that only local IPs are allowed. To allow access to all IPs, remove this line from $aleph_dev/ng/aleph/home/system/thirdparty/tomcat/conf/server.xml. 

    To allow specific IPs, add IPs to this file in Regular Expression.
