integration.rb follow_redirect! forgets HTTP_AUTH

Reported by Enrico Teotti | August 20th, 2008 @ 08:58 AM | in 2.x

In integration.rb the follow_redirect! method uses:


and it doesn't remember the HTTP_AUTHORIZATION coming from the previous request. I guess it's normal not to as a browser cache does but it's still a problem during testing. I solved it changing the call to:

get(interpret_uri(headers['location'].first), nil, {:authorization => @request.headers["HTTP_AUTHORIZATION"]})

I've attached the dummy project where I did the test: integration/products_test.rb I had No idea how to create an automated test to test the test :) Hope it will help to knock out this small issue.

    Exactly, your browser resends that data everytime. It would be nice to be able to set the default headers for each request.

    Not exactly an easy fix thought ;)
