MamaCAS includes custom management commands to aid in some common tasks. You can see which management commands are available by running:
The commands specific to MamaCAS will show up underneath the
heading. To run a given command:
$ manage.py <command name>
checkservice <service> [<pgtUrl>]
Checks the validity and configuration of a given service identifier and optional pgtUrl. For example:$ manage.py checkservice https://www.example.org Invalid Service: https://www.example.org $ manage.py checkservice https://www.example.com Valid Service: https://www.example.com Proxy Allowed: False Logout Allowed: False Logout URL: None Callbacks: ['mama_cas.callbacks.user_name_attributes'] $ manage.py checkservice https://www.example.com https://proxy.example.com Valid Service: https://www.example.com Proxy Allowed: True Proxy Callback Allowed: True Logout Allowed: False Logout URL: None Callbacks: ['mama_cas.callbacks.user_name_attributes']
Tickets created by MamaCAS are not removed from the database at the moment of invalidation. Running this command will delete all invalid tickets from the database. Tickets are invalidated either when they expire a configurable number of seconds after creation or by being consumed. Either situation means the ticket is no longer valid for future authentication attempts and can be safely deleted.
It is recommended that this command be run on a regular basis so invalid tickets do not become a performance or storage concern.
