When using the CSRF middleware, these three tests from django.contrib.auth.tests.views are failing with a 403 status (Response: "Cross Site Request Forgery detected. Request aborted."):

  • test_password_change_fails_with_invalid_old_password
  • test_password_change_fails_with_mismatched_passwords
  • test_password_change_succeeds

These tests pass when the CSRF middleware is disabled.

Currently running r11430.

  • Status changed from new to closed

You have to run the tests with the middleware disabled. None of the tests use proper browser emulation (i.e. posting hidden fields that are in the forms), and so will fail to get through the CSRF checks which rely on a hidden field.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
