Logging into Insights (koa) using LMS (koa) causing error 500

Hi everyone,

I’m trying to add insights to my Open Edx(koa) this month and I think I’m almost done… I’m on one of the final steps where I have to configure SSO/Oauth2 so when I try to login from <insights Domain> I will be redirected to the LMS to complete login.

After successfully logging in with a registered user, I receive a 500 error and get the following issue:


Logs from insights:

I used tutor to create a superuser called insights to kind of mimic the user that discover/ecommerce creates when enabling their respective services.

In <lms Domain>/admin/oauth2_provider/application I added a new application with the following:

Client id: <generated Client id>
User: <created an insights superuser>
Redirect urls: <insightsDomain>:18110/complete/edx-oauth2/
Client type: Confidential
Authorization grant type: Authorization code
Client secret: <generated Client secret>
Name: <insights-sso>
Skip authorization: enabled

In the installation steps for insights it stated to use <insights Domain>/complete/edx-oidc/> for redirect, however it seems oidc has been replaced with oauth2 hence my change there.

I also created a record insights with the following in <lms Domain>/admin/oauth_dispath/applicationaccess/:

Application: insights
Scopes: user_id
Filters: <empty>

I’m wondering if I have to patch anything in tutor or change any of my configurations to allow this SSO to work?

Such as suggested here:

In LMS: unauthorized_client An unauthorized client tried to access your resources. - Insights setting SOCIAL_AUTH_EDX_OIDC_KEY was not found among LMS' OAuth2 Clients' Client ID. Check that LMS Client ID matches INSIGHTS_OAUTH2_KEY variable value.

I think I fixed this:

Run tutor local run lms bash, navigate to /openedx/config and use the command cat lms.env.json you’ll find the value at OAUTH_OIDC_ISSUER. Update the value SOCIAL_AUTH_EDX_OAUTH2_URL_ROOT in insights.yml to match the OAUTH_OIDC_ISSUER value.

can you provide a playbook for doing this I would be very interested in doing the same.

Wow good job. Does this mean that you managed to get Insights to work with Tutor? Definitely a very interesting addition for many people.

@regis Still working on it… but I think I’m close. Do you know if there’s a difference in the contents of the tracking.log file when using tutor to run openedx and without using tutor to run openedx?

Edit: Actually is there a way to configure tutor to not track log this portion in tracking.log and just have the event?

2021-04-14 22:34:09,839 INFO 19 [tracking] [user None] [ip ip.here] logger.py:42 - (not log up to this part) {event}

Sure. You need to create a tutor plugin that will implement the the “openedx-common-settings” patch. In this patch, you should modify the Django logging configuration for the “tracking” logger: tutor/common_all.py at 96be0b740149e938a536e0cd78aba4e3651bf782 · overhangio/tutor · GitHub
What you need to do is to modify the “formatter” attribute. Check the Django docs for examples: Logging | Django documentation | Django

Hi there @c3ho - how’s your Insights project going?

Can I take the opportunity to pitch Cairn here? It’s an amazing (seriously: I’m really proud of it) analytics tool that is now part of the Tutor Wizard Edition: Overhang.IO | Tutor Plugins - cairn
