Add setting in config file for reports in a subdirctory

Reported by: [email protected] Owned by: desai
Priority: minor Milestone: Bcfg2 0.9.6 Release
Component: bcfg2-server Version:
Keywords: Cc:


There is a patch for bcfg2/src/lib/Server/Reports/ at

There is probably a better place to use ConfigParser?, but I am not so sure since that module only imports something from django.

The new setting is called "web_prefix". It is found in the [statistics] section of the bcfg2-web.conf . It needs to have a trailing '/' but no leading '/'.

The bug that this patch fixes is when you access the dynamic reports from a subdirectory instead of the document root of a virtualhost, you must modify to include that subdirectory. Otherwise, you get the following error if debug is on.

Page not found (404)
Request Method: 	GET
Request URL: 	http://localhost/bcfg2/displays/summary/

Using the URLconf defined in Bcfg2.Server.Reports.urls, Django tried these URL patterns, in this order:

   1. ^/*$
   2. ^clients/(?P<timestamp>(19|20)\d\d-(0[1-9]|1[012])-(0[1-9]|[dee158e0d75ced9dffe19c101e4ebc93b4858156] (SVN r12)[0-9]|3[01])@([01][0-9]|2[0-3]):([0-5][0-9]|60):([0-5][0-9]|60))/$
   3. ^clients/(?P<hostname>\S+)/(?P<pk>\d+)/$
   4. ^clients/(?P<hostname>\S+)/manage/$
   5. ^clients/(?P<hostname>\S+)/$
   6. ^clients/(?P<hostname>\S+)$
   7. ^clients/$
   8. ^displays/sys-view/(?P<timestamp>(19|20)\d\d-(0[1-9]|1[012])-(0[1-9]|[dee158e0d75ced9dffe19c101e4ebc93b4858156] (SVN r12)[0-9]|3[01])@([01][0-9]|2[0-3]):([0-5][0-9]|60):([0-5][0-9]|60))/$
   9. ^displays/sys-view/$
  10. ^displays/summary/(?P<timestamp>(19|20)\d\d-(0[1-9]|1[012])-(0[1-9]|[dee158e0d75ced9dffe19c101e4ebc93b4858156] (SVN r12)[0-9]|3[01])@([01][0-9]|2[0-3]):([0-5][0-9]|60):([0-5][0-9]|60))/$

  16. ^elements/modified/(?P<eyedee>\d+)/$
  17. ^elements/modified/(?P<timestamp>(19|20)\d\d-(0[1-9]|1[012])-(0[1-9]|[dee158e0d75ced9dffe19c101e4ebc93b4858156] (SVN r12)[0-9]|3[01])@([01]\ [0-9]|2[0-3]):([0-5][0-9]|60):([0-5][0-9]|60))/$
  18. ^elements/modified/$
  19. ^elements/bad/(?P<eyedee>\d+)/(?P<timestamp>(19|20)\d\d-(0[1-9]|1[012])-(0[1-9]|[dee158e0d75ced9dffe19c101e4ebc93b4858156] (SVN r12)[0-9]|3[01])@([01][0-9]|2[0-3]):([0-5][0-9]|60):([0-5][0-9]|60))/$
  20. ^elements/bad/(?P<eyedee>\d+)/$
  21. ^elements/bad/(?P<timestamp>(19|20)\d\d-(0[1-9]|1[012])-(0[1-9]|[dee158e0d75ced9dffe19c101e4ebc93b4858156] (SVN r12)[0-9]|3[01])@([01]\ [0-9]|2[0-3]):([0-5][0-9]|60):([0-5][0-9]|60))/$
  22. ^elements/bad/$

The current URL, /bcfg2/displays/summary/, didn't match any of these.

You're seeing this error because you have DEBUG = True in your Django settings file. Change that to False, and Django will display a standard 404 page.

This patch seems to already be in Following the docu for setting up the new report system? one gets

# python /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/Bcfg2/Server/Reports/
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/Bcfg2/Server/Reports/", line 6, in ?

  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/", line 520, in get
    raise NoOptionError(option, section)
ConfigParser.NoOptionError: No option 'web_debug' in section: 'statistics'

This means that either the web_debug setting under statistics in /etc/bcfg2-web.conf should be mandatory or the check should deal with no such setting existing.
