function shibboleth_session_active() possible bug (3 posts)

    In trying to get this pluging working on our test site I came across a possible type in the function mentioned above.

    The function shibboleth_session_active checks the array
    $_SERVER
    for a couple of keys and uses that to determine if a session is active.
    In the 1.4 code the keys which are checked are
    $session_headers = array('Shib-Session-ID', 'HTTP_SHIB_IDENTITY_PROVIDER');

    What I got to work here was a check using the following:

    $session_headers = array('Shib_Session_ID', 'HTTP_SHIB_IDENTITY_PROVIDER');

    Thought you might want to know.

    Hi,
    I would check the version of shibboleth client that you are running. My problem only occurred in an older version of the client. The shib 2.4 client doesn't have the problem I described in my earlier post. You might want to make sure that you are actually seeing the variables a dump of the variables via
    <?php
    phpinof();
    ?>

    might help to diagnose the problem.
