Ticket: Perform License Valdiation in the Browser
|Add-on / Version||Publisher 3.2.2|
Elli PrattFeb 10, 2021
We previously submitted this ticket for a way to disable version checking (almost 4 years ago).
In our network stack, our apache servers are unable to contact the internet and http requests will just hang until timeout.
In the newest version of Publisher, there is new license validation check that executes a `curl` command on the server.
This caused “gateway timeout” errors when accessing the CP intermittently.
I know some addons perform license validation in the browser.
Is there a way to move the check to the browser instead of using `curl` on the server?
We had to comment out the check, so we quickly get our internal updates to prod.
However, we do not want to keep that line commented out.

Elli, with the changes come to the EE.com store, I’ll be looking into things, but I won’t be rushing into it any time soon. If your server is blocking curl requests (which is rather odd and restrictive IMO b/c curl is pretty common) then you’ll need to continue commenting out those lines of code.

Rushing into making any changes I mean. It’ll be awhile before I make any sweeping changes to the license validation.

It’s not that is blocking `curl` itself. For security reasons our apache servers are in a zone that doesn’t allow for inbound or outbound requests to the internet. Only intranet requests are allowed with our firewall.
We’ll keep making the code change for now. We mainly wanted to bring it to your attention.
