404 when accessing repo via http
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Problem description:
When Phabricator "allow-public" is true and a repository is only accessible for certain users (non public) a push/pull failes with "404 No such repository".

  1. Set phabricator to public
  2. Set Diffusion Can Use Application, Default View Policy and Default Push Policy to a Project (I think this step has not been done in the previous attempt)
  3. Create a git repository with Visibile To, Pushable By set to a Project
  4. Try to push/pull the repo:
git push
fatal: repository 'https://xyz/diffusion/MS/test.git/' not found

After applying the patch it is possible to push/pull as expected:

git push
Everything up-to-date

Reason:

DiffusionServeController.php
-> If allow-public is set to true, no further check is done if the repository is even accessible as anonymous.

I ran into a 404 repository not found after changing Diffusion from public to All users. The repository in question is set to read and editable by users of a specific project. I was able to re-access the repository by setting Diffusion back to public (the repository still has restricted access).

Summary:
Diffusion: Usable by "All users" (i.e. non-public)
Repository: Visible to members of project X, editable by members of project X.
Result: "404 Repository not found" when attempting to push with Mercurial.
Expected: Repository should be accessible to user with correct credentials even if Diffusion is non-public.

See Contributing Bug Reports.

I can not reproduce this. Here's what I did:

  • Set policy.allow-public to true.
  • Set the view policy for a repository to "All Users".
  • Tried to clone it over HTTP.

Here's what I experienced:

$ git clone http://local.phacility.com/diffusion/TESTY/git-test.git
Cloning into 'git-test'...
fatal: unable to access 'http://local.phacility.com/diffusion/TESTY/git-test.git/': The requested URL returned error: 403

In particular, note this:

The requested URL returned error: 403

...i.e., a 403 (Forbidden), not a 404 (Not Found).

This issue is still relevant and reproducible in the current release.
Here are the steps to reproduce it:

  1. Set phabricator to public
  2. Set Diffusion Can Use Application, Default View Policy and Default Push Policy to a Project (I think this step has not been done in the previous attempt)
  3. Create a git repository with Visibile To, Pushable By set to a Project
  4. Try to push/pull the repo:
git push
fatal: repository 'https://xyz/diffusion/MS/test.git/' not found

After applying the patch it is possible to push/pull as expected:

git push

Again, this issue is still relevant. Updating did again break it.

Isn't this working as designed? A user (or the public) needing access to the diffusion application in order to access repositories is exactly the behavior I would expect.

Yes sure. But in the case I've described above the user has access to diffusion (is member of the project having the diffusion application permission).
