Today I am having issues authenticating as an owner for my room. I am confident that the username and password is correct and was previously working. It also seems to work fine with the AFCSDevConsole.
Here's the message I get:
[SWF] Users:stefan:Desktop:CocomoSDK_0.91:examples:SharedCollection:bin-debug:SharedCollectionExample.swf - 1,164,600 bytes after decompression
I think there are two problems here. Firstly I think I should authenticate as an owner with the credentials I pass. However maybe this is a temporary glitch with the service.
The second issue (regardless of whether or not there is an issue with the service atm) is that I think the service should alert me of the fact that authentication failed. Simply logging me on to the room as Guest seems wrong as I am assuming that authentication succeeded using the credentials I passed, yet they did not and my role was downgraded which is not obvious to spot. Hope this makes sense.
Likely the problem here is that you've gotten a session established as a guest, and your browser is holding on to it, and sending those session credentials no matter what. Try clearing sessions or re-starting your browser. We're trying to figure out how to avoid this for developers, but at least the good news is that your users should pretty much never hit this issue.
