Re: Dynamic Refreshing Image URL

Okay, there were a few issues going on here. First, there was a minor bug/upgrade that needed to be made to the Variable URL Redirect web server plugin. I've updated the download here. I also updated the Installation instructions on that page. Note for Indigo 2021.1 the installation folder path has changed. The Indigo 2021.1 installer probably copied your old plugin to the correct location, so you should find the old version there. Replace it with the new version.

However, there was also a more general bug in Indigo 2021.1's new internal Web Server that caused that plugin to fail to load and start correctly. I have that fixed in 2021.1.1, but we haven't built an installer for it yet. If we end up building an internal beta installer before we release it I'll send it to you so you can try it out. Go ahead and install the new Variable URL Redirect plugin now though, then all you will need is the new installer once it is available and it should start working.

Thanks, Matt. I’ll give it a try and wait for a new installer.

Much appreciated,
Daniel

Re: Dynamic Refreshing Image URL

Hi Matt,

That fixed it and the Web Assets reference has the images in the right public folder now after converting. Seems to be fully functional, for my implementation at least (haven't tried a restart though, if there is an error on load I wouldn't catch it yet).

Thank you for the update to the documentation and new plugin.

Best regards,
Daniel

Re: Dynamic Refreshing Image URL

Great, thanks for the report. I thought you would need the bug fix in Indigo's Web server, but it sounds like you aren't hitting that particular issue.

Re: Dynamic Refreshing Image URL

I’m having a similar issue with the URL Redirect plugin after updating from 7.5 to 2021.1.
The URL format I used in the control pages was:

http://USER:PASSWORD@localhost:8176/variable_url_redirect/redirect?name=Satellite_Image_1

But that gave me the following error:

Error (client) control page image URL failed to load: https://xxxx:xxxx@localhost:8176/variab ... te_Image_1
Error (client) An SSL error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made.

So I changed http: for https: like so:

https://USER:PASSWORD@localhost:8176/variable_url_redirect/redirect?name=Satellite_Image_1

But now I get the following error:

Web Server https://localhost:8176/variable_url_red ... te_Image_3 load error: <urlopen error [SSL: WRONG_VERSION_NUMBER] wrong version number (_ssl.c:727)>

I have downloaded the plugin again, reinstalled and restarted the Indigo Server, but issue remains the same.
Any help?
Thanks.

Re: Dynamic Refreshing Image URL

The web server doesn't support SSL directly (only via the reflector).

Is the URL in your variable an HTTPS url, and is it pointing to a valid HTTPS server?

Re: Dynamic Refreshing Image URL

All was working perfectly until I updated to 2021.1.
In version 2021.1, with the original URL redirection:

http://USER:PSWRD@localhost:8176/variable_url_redirect/redirect?name=Satellite_Image_1

I get this error:

Error (client) control page image URL failed to load: http://USER:PSWRD@localhost:8176/variab ... te_Image_1
Error (client) The resource could not be loaded because the App Transport Security policy requires the use of a secure connection.


The URL in the variable is (for instance):

https://estaticos.smn.gob.ar/vmsr/satel ... 00022Z.jpg

And as you could check, it is a valid one.


UPDATE

Don´t know why, but re-edited the Control Page with the issue, and altho while editing I still get the above mentioned error messages, once saved, the page works properly and now loads the images correctly, with no error messages in the Indigo log.

Re: Dynamic Refreshing Image URL

Ah - ok, I think we understand the issue now. We'll look into the issue, but it is a Mac Client error so it should work when hitting it from iOS or a browser.

Re: Dynamic Refreshing Image URL

Thanks anyway.
FYI, now is working well under iOS (Indigo Touch iPhone and iPad) and on macOS, Safari and Chrome.
