Hi Nicola,

thanks a lot for the help! Yes, it's a self-signed certificate, I didn't bother 
with letsencrypt yet ;-).

So now the error turned to

ConnectionError: GET: error 401: b'<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 
2.0//EN">\n<html><head>\n<title>401 Authorization 
Required</title>\n</head><body>\n<h1>Authorization Required</h1>\n<p>This 
server could not verify that you\nare authorized to access the 
document\nrequested.  Either you supplied the wrong\ncredentials (e.g., bad 
password), or your\nbrowser doesn\'t understand how to supply\nthe credentials 
required.</p>\n</body></html>\n', 0 attempts left: None

which is what I expected, since apache now wants the authentication through 
LDAP.

So anybody know what the right settings are to get both the dataset import and 
the API working with external user auth over apache and LDAP?

Thanks,
Sarah

Subject: Re: [galaxy-dev] Remote user auth and API

Hi Sarah!
I guess that your problem is with an untrusted certificate, you can get one for 
free at https://letsencrypt.org/

You can disable certificate verification in bioblend as in the example below:

import bioblend.galaxy
gi = bioblend.galaxy.GalaxyInstance(url=my_server, key=my_key)
gi.verify = False

Cheers,
Nicola

Dear all,

since the recent update to 16.04 I get the following error when trying to 
import a file from a user directory to a data library:

AssertionError: use_remote_user is set but HTTP_REMOTE_USER header was not 
provided

I use apache as a proxy and use an LDAP server for authentication. In order to 
get the API to work previously the apache had to be set to not check 
authentication for the requests to /api. In the logs I can see that the dataset 
import is an request to the API, so since the auth is not checked then, there 
is also no REMOTE_USER header set.

What is the recommended way to solve this issue with the current Galaxy 
version? I disabled the special settings for /api and the dataset import works 
now.

I tried to check the API with an old test script based on bioblend, but I now 
get the following error:

ConnectionError: [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed 
(_ssl.c:645), 0 attempts left: None

Previously I could disable it with

import requests
requests.packages.urllib3.disable_warnings()

but that doesn't seem to work anymore (switched to Python 3 now). Since 
bioblend wraps all the requests methods, I cannot apply any of the common 
solutions I found online (e.g. set verify=False).

Any help to solve these issues is highly appreciated :-).

Best regards,
Sarah
