[EZ 5.3] - Problem exception token Ajax on delete Node

[EZ 5.3] - Problem exception token Ajax on delete Node

Friday 06 June 2014 11:48:41 am - 9 replies


I have a problem with ajax request and delete content node on ez 5.3. I have created a service which consists to delete a node. This service is called in a controller like this :

 if ($this->getRequest()->isXmlHttpRequest() && $locationIdRegistration) {
    $serviceCart = $this->get('training_site.cart');

The function "removeRegistration" in the service calls the "deleteContent" eZ function like this :


The problem is that the function returns an exception : 

Missing form token from Request .... in /var/www/....../ezpublish_legacy/extension/ezformtoken/event/ezxformtoken.php at line 148

For more details, here is my ajax request : 

    type: 'POST',            
    url: urlAjax,            
    dataType: 'json',            
    success: function (response) {                
        if (response.status == 'success') {                    
        } else {

HOWEVER, THE OBJECT IS CORRECTLY DELETED, but i have always the exception.


Thanks for your help

For more details, there are no exception when the user is not logged (in anonymous).

Hi Clem,

This exception is due to the lack of CSRF certificate. Indeed, if the user is logged in, the presence of this certificate is verified. 

You need to assign a value to the variable "$ _SERVER ['HTTP_X_CSRF_TOKEN']" to bypass this exception for the logged in user.

Hi Christophe,

I test this solution but I have always an exception. Below, the new exeption :

 Wrong form token found in Request! ... <span>in /var/www/cnpp/ezpublish_legacy/extension/ezformtoken/event/ezxformtoken.php at line 152</span>


Another idea maybe ?

You can use the method getToken to have a correct one blunk.gif Emoticon

$_SERVER['HTTP_X_CSRF_TOKEN'] = ezxFormToken::getToken();

The solution works but the admin interface is broken after the request. We always need to clear the cache.

Maybe is there another solution ?


Tkx for your help,

Have you tried with this example:

I had the same problem and it working fine now.

Soufian's example (ref: his doc link) is the right way to deal with this.

But make sure you use solution #A when you deal with Platform/Symfony code (or if your unsure), as #B will only work if output is generated by legacy!
