i am trying to get authenticated data after login with services module. ive a drupal services set up at openshift and the htmls are in my devices.

i managed to login, get authenticated, get the session name, id, token etc. but when i tried to fetch data for authenticated users, im getting the "403: Access denied for user anonymous" error. same on both firefox and chrome.

ive used postman in chrome and poster in firefox. im getting all the desired results. if i logged in drupal and open the url directly, im getting the right results too. that proves my services and everything are correctly configured.

i also tried examples with curl and php from my localhost, and they worked fine without any problem.

ive searched for solutions here and drupal forum. i did saw a few almost similar problems to mine in here, but they were not answered (like this one Post AJAX JSON with session id). after 5 days of failure, i think i should create a new post.

below are the codes. i hoped someone could get me to the right direction. thanks in advance.

$.post( "https://drupal-halmsx.rhcloud.com/services/auth/user/login.json", 
    { "username": username, "password": password })
  .done(function(data) {

        var sessid = data.sessid;
        var session_name = data.session_name;
        var user = data.user;
        var token = data.token;

        $.cookie(session_name, sessid, {path: '/'}); // set session name and id
        //$.cookie("token", token);


            type: "GET",
            url: "https://drupal-halmsx.rhcloud.com/services/auth/user/10.json", // hardcode this for example.
            beforeSend: function(xhr) {
                xhr.setRequestHeader('X-CSRF-Token', token)
            dataType: "json"
    .fail(function (data) {
  • been researching since i last post this and found that none of the similar question in all forums i went to are answered. decided to create hybrid app with drupalgap to manage the login session. but still hoping this would be answered one day. Commented Jan 31, 2015 at 14:15
