How to disable Cross Site Request Forgery ( CSRF ) warning?

I am integrating foswiki as an intranet solution for a firm with about 1000 emplyees. The webserver and everything is heavyly shielded and the authentication unique to the person. I get questions all the time from people how feel threatened by the CSRF warning. And I don't see any need for this warning in enviroment but was not able to find a clean solution to disable it. I guess i overlooked it. Anyway. Maybe a it's good to have this question answered for your support database. And of course you would help us very much with it smile

Kind regards,

If you are referring to the page that is headed "Warning! Confirmation required" (or local language equivalent) then you can change the behaviour in configure:

Security and Authentication ... Sessions ... {Validation}{Method} defaults to strikeone but can be set to none to disable CSRF warnings.

I have had the same problem of "Warning! Confirmation required" sites popping up everytime a change was submitted to the wiki (edit, user registration, etc.) after upgrading from 1.0.9 to 1.1.2. Even worse some Firefox browsers didn't even showed an OK button.

Setting the {Validation}{Method} to embedded did the trick for me even if the OK button is still missing sometimes.
