ReturnURL Clearing Querystring?

Jan 26, 2011

Is it possible clear ReturnUrl from the server? I have a login page where the user logouts and I want to direct them to a specific page but when ReturnURL is set it overrides my redirect page.

Update:Ideally, I will only redirect a user who has just logged out versus someone who has bookmarked OR I will redirect regardless in special cases.So these are the cases:A link or bookmark -> should redirect to specified page in most case.A logout that has a returnurl -> should NOT redirect to the page,A special case -> should always redirect to my special case, i.e when a user needs to see something important

Is there a way to remove the returnurl from the logout/login status control?

Security :: How To Retain Querystring Values In ReturnURL

Oct 21, 2010

I've got a couple pages in my web app that are used by external applications. They will link to the pages, and pass in various querystring values to allow my app to do the searching and return the results in the page. The problem is, if the user is not yet logged into the web app, they are sent to the login page, and the ReturnURL is truncated to include only the first QueryString value. I lose the rest of the values. So far I haven't figured out a solution to this. Here's a quick example:

The external application links the user to:

If the user is not logged in they are sent to the login page, and the current URL looks like this:

AJAX :: Control Toolkit Clearing Request.QueryString?

Dec 16, 2010

I have a web form, and it appears that when I add the AJAX control toolkit on my webform, my Request.QueryString is clearing out. Here is what happens:

1) User clicks next on form 3, and I load up form 4 (form 3 passes query string to form 4)

2) User clicks next on form 4, and form 4 checks the query string that was passed by 3, and it's emtpy

This only happened when I added AJAX functionality.

C# - Why Is The Call To Request.QueryString["ReturnUrl"] Returning NULL

Jan 29, 2010

(This is a more narrow question)

In my MVC action, I am looking if the ReturnUrl value is in the URL.

My Url looks like this:


In my action, I am looking if that querystring value exists, and it is returning NULL?? How can this be?

The code:

if(Request.QueryString["ReturnUrl"] != null)

Tracing through the application, it is just skipping the if statement's body i.e. it is NULL.

How can this be explained?

Security :: Add ReturnUrl But Don't Get Redirected?

Apr 8, 2010

For a testproject I use two Login pages. I order to do that I use a dispatcher page:



I then just redirect in the dispatcher to the real login-page according to the ReturnUrl. So far so good. The only problem I have is that I don't get redirected to the ReturnUrl once I'm logged in... Of course I add the ReturnUrl to the forwarded Login-Page (/Admin/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=...).

Web Forms :: ReturnUrl And GetRouteUrl?

Aug 24, 2010

I'm building my 4.0 website with url routing. It works great, except that I have stumbled upon one problem. The problem is that when a logged in user is on one of the non-public pages and gets loged out, the return url is set to the page he or she was previously visiting. When logging in again, the ReturnUrl is non routed url (something like login.aspx?ReturnUrl=somethingsomething). This poses a problem for some of my pages where I have a default value stored in the route; it simply doesn't get picked up with the non routed url of the ReturnUrl.The result is a broken page (404).

MVC :: Passing ReturnURL Through Authorization?

Dec 16, 2010

I am creating MVC e-commerce website.

There is an "Add to Cart" button on product detail page, and If I click the button, it should be directed to login page.

After I login, it should be re-directed to the product detail page.

"Add to Cart" button is a CartConroller action.

In CartController.cs :


In AccountController.cs :


the product should not be added into the cart before login, so I put [Authorize] on AddToCart action.

however if I click the "add to cart" button, it directs to the login page, and if I login, it gives me an error because it lost all the AddToCart action's parameter information(e.g. Cart cart, int productId, string returnURL)

Data Controls :: Populate DataList Based On QueryString Value Throws Error When QueryString Is NULL Or Blank

May 7, 2015

The following code works well as long as I pass a querystring value to the datalist.

Private Sub BindGrid()
Dim id As Integer = Integer.Parse(Context.Request.QueryString("id"))
Dim strConnString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("Conn").ConnectionString
Using con As New SqlConnection(strConnString)
Using cmd As New SqlCommand()
cmd.CommandText = "select Id, Name from tblFiles where Id=@Id"

[Code] ......

However, the page errors with the message "Value cannot be null." if I don't pass a value. I know that DataList does not have an EmptyItem Property like a Gridview control. I do not want the page to error if I don't pass a value. Need info to deal with empty values in a datalist.

Most websites have pointed me to this code to use:

<asp:Label ID="lblEmpty" Text="No Result" runat="server"

The 'list' throws an error. The error is "Too few type arguments to 'System.COllections.Generic.List". I am not sure if the code is written in C# and that is what is causing the error. It seems that it should work but I can not figure out the 'list' error.

Check ReturnUrl Is Valid Before Redirecting?

Feb 19, 2010

I'm using ASP.NET Membership and Form Authentication and before redirecting to the returnURL I wanted to validate it. For those unfamiliar with the workflow, basically if you request a page that requires that you are authenticated, you are redirected to a login page. In the URL string you'll see a parameter called returnURL, e.g. [URL]

Whether you use this in a redirect such as Response.Redirect(returnURL) or indirectly through the FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage method, it passes without validating returnURL.

FormsAuthentication.RedirectFromLoginPage does have a security check that it is isn't leaving the domain, but that still doesn't stop someone from putting enough random characters to cause an error.

I tried using System.IO.File.Exists(Server.MapPath(returnURL)) but given enough illegal characters it cause Server.MapPath to error.

Note: URLEncoding doesn't work because we are not cleaning a parameter, but the primary URL.

Mobiles :: Some Long String Preceding ReturnUrl - Log In Again?

Here's an example of what it looks like: [URL] At that point, I'm at where I wanted to go but I'm logged off. If I try to go to another secure page, I have to log in again.

IIS 7 With Url Rewrite Module 2.0 - Setting 401 Status Codes And The ReturnUrl

Feb 2, 2011

I have a website hosted on IIS7 with the url rewrite module 2.0 installed. It is run by content management that looks at the url and returns a 401 error if the current user does not have permission to view the page. This gets picked up by the url authorization module which then kicks the page over to the loginUrl page as specified in the web.config (forms authentication).

This works perfectly on my local machine - which is IIS7 and windows7.

If the url is, say, /612/some-string the user gets directed to the login page at /66/login?ReturnUrl=/612/some-string

The url rewriting looks at the first part of the url for the document id. The real url would be this: index.aspx?documentId=612

Unfortunately, when I deployed this to our staging server, the ReturnUrl isn't the rewritten url, it's the original url. This causes all sorts of problems.

The staging server is also IIS7 with the url rewrite module 2.0 installed. It's Windows 2008 server SP2. Both are running 3.5.

My only guess is that the machine.config orders the default httpModules differently, and the .net forms authentication module is jumping in before the url has been rewritten.

I'll review that soon, but in the meantime has anyone experienced this problem and solved it?


I also tried changing

Response.StatusCode = 401;



Which gets me a bit ahead, but still directs the user back to the url that hasn't been rewritten.

I can also do this instead of setting the 401:

string currentPage = HttpUtility.UrlEncode(Request.RawUrl);
string loginUrl = FormsAuthentication.LoginUrl + "?ReturnUrl=" + currentPage;

But this seems ugly.

Web Forms :: LoginStatus Return URL Modification / How To Keep The Id Number (1008) In The ReturnURL

Jan 20, 2010

I have a loginStatus control, if user click "Login", it will go to the login page, and usually followed by "ReturnUrl": for example:

Before I hit the "Login", the page is:


After I click the "Login", the URL is:


As you can see the parameter value 1008 is gone. Have searched for a while, one article mentioned:

"ASP.NET's login controls use a ReturnUrl, but don't keep the parameters in this URL".

How can i keep the id number (1008) in the ReturnURL? or have other way to get around this? can I write my own returnURL? say once user clicks the "Login", I create my own return url, myReturnURL=ReturnUrl=/Books/CodeInBooks.aspx?id=1008

C# - Forms Authentication Adding Additional Information Alongwith ReturnUrl?

Oct 12, 2010

With Forms Authentication when the app needs to redirect to sign-in page is there an event or any extensibility point that will let me do additional work to the request before it redirects to the sign-in page?

I would like to send additional information in the query string that could vary such that it wouldn't work to just statically embed that in the link in the loginUrl node in the web.config.

Edit: For clarification, I want to intercept the request prior to being redirected TO the login page.


<authentication mode="Forms">
<forms loginUrl="http://the/interwebs/login.aspx" timeout="2880"
enableCrossAppRedirects="true" />

And prior the user being redirected to http://the/interwebs/login.aspx I would like to be able to pack in query values so the url could end up something like http://the/interwebs/login.aspx?Action=Refresh

No Querystring Logged In IIS Log On "A Potentially Dangerous Request.QueryString Value Detected"

I'm intermittently seeing this exception being thrown:

A potentially dangerous Request.QueryString value detected

However when I look in the IIS logs I can see that the request that failed has no querystring logged against it.

How could this be? Are "dangerous" query strings being stripped from the log or something?
