The Audit portlet does not grab the IP from the X-Forwarded-For parameter

    Details

      Description

      Steps to reproduce:
      1. Add the following properties to your portal-ext:

      com.liferay.portal.servlet.filters.audit.AuditFilter=true
      audit.message.com.liferay.portal.model.Layout.VIEW=true

      2. Start Liferay and login as admin
      3. Install the X-Forwarded-For header Firefox extenstion here, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/x-forwarded-for-header/
      4. Assign an IP to be in the X-Forwarded-For header via the extension (8.8.8.8)
      5. Start Liferay and login as admin (no web server this time)
      6. Deploy the Audit portlet
      7. Go to > Control Panel > Audit
      8. Verify that the X-Forwarded-For IP address is not listed in the report (ip will likely be listed as 127.0.0.1 instead of the specified ip in x-forwarded-for portlet)

      This issue requires the Audit portlet to verify without actually debugging the code. Unfortunately the Audit portlet does not work (66ba73386469458e38a446a93952b388eca81b7b, 7.0 plugins: 94843f431faa30b25cc1b3046749ae22a480e9d2) in master.
