Location Header in /system/inputs REST response contains wrong value ('') #1020

When issuing a POST /system/inputs to create a new input the server responds with HTTP 201 and a Location header. However the value of this header field does not contain the correct IP address of the actual location, but instead returns an address: This is in violation of RFC 2616 14.30 Location which states that the Location header is to refer to the actual location of the resource that was created in response to the request.

This behaviour was observed on a Graylog v1.0.0 inside the graylog2/allinone docker image on a CentOS 7.

Investigate which host jersey's UriBuilder takes if none is specified.

Thanks for reporting this. Can you please post the rest_listen_uri and rest_transport_uri (if defined) settings from your server's configuration file?

Hi Dennis, good hint! here are the values:

rest_listen_uri =
#rest_transport_uri =

However, I am using your official plain Docker image without any modification. So this is wrong out of the box. In my opinion this would have to be adjusted by the graylog-ctl reconfigure-* script.

Setting rest_listen_uri to is supported but the REST API should not generate Location headers with

Yeah, this is totally fine, but explains where the value in the location header is coming from. Will fix.
