SOAP SendMsgRequest results in "missing required attribute: name"

Postby DaveSmash » Tue Apr 10, 2018 5:50 pm

I am trying to allow users to send messages from an intranet site without authenticating separately to Zimbra or using the Zimbra web portal. Since I don't store the user's password, I need to use delegate access.

First, I use <AuthRequest xmlns="urn:zimbraAdmin"></AuthRequest> to get an admin token. Then I use <DelegateAuthRequest duration="86400" xmlns="urn:zimbraAdmin"></DelegateAuthRequest> to get a delegate token for the user who is logged into the intranet (delegate tokens are cached until they expire). Both of these requests use the soap admin endpoint and port 7071. I know the delegate token is working because I can use it for REST API requests.

Next I am trying to use the delegate token and the normal endpoint on port 443 to send a message on behalf of the user, but I get a 500 internal server error. mailbox.log indicates I am missing a required attribute (name). Looking at the API reference (https://files.zimbra.com/docs/soap_api/ ... index.html) the only required name attributes I see are part of the <inv> (invite information) (/m/inv/comp/at/xparam@name and /m/inv/comp/alarm/xprop@name are required, all other properties called "name" are optional). I don't even have an <inv> tag, though, since I don't currently need to support invitations, and m/inv is optional. Here is the xml I am sending:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope">
   <soap:Header>
      <context xmlns="urn:zimbra">
         <authToken>0_0e7ec35...30363b</authToken>
         <session/>
         <account by="name">jreynolds@mydomain.com</account>
         <userAgent name="zclient" version="8.8.6_GA_1906"/>
      </context>
   </soap:Header>
   <soap:Body>
      <SendMsgRequest xmlns="urn:zimbraMail">
         <m su="Test">
            <header></header>
            <content>&lt;p&gt;Testing&lt;/p&gt;</content>
            <e a="jreynolds@mydomain.com" t="f" p="Jimmy Reynolds" />
            <e a="joepublic@gmail.com" t="t" p="Joe Public" />
         </m>
      </SendMsgRequest>
   </soap:Body>
</soap:Envelope>


And here is the relevant part of the mailbox.log:

Code: Select all

Can anybody help me figure out what is going on? Thanks in advance!

Removing the empty <header></header> tag inside the <m> tag seems to have resolved the issue. According to the documentation, /m/header@name is optional, but apparently it is not...
