How to access single user notebook in a web browser in API only mode?

I would like to inquire about how to run user notebooks in a web browser while in API only mode.

I’m interested in using JupyterHub’s API only mode to enable users to run their individual single-user JupyterLab servers.

I’ve configured the environment on AWS EKS by referring to “Zero to JupyterHub with Kubernetes.”

  • helm chart version 3.0.3

I followed the steps below:

  1. After configuring config.yaml as shown below, I logged in as the root user and generated an API Token.

            - root
  2. To use API Only mode, I changed the Authenticator to NullAuthenticator.
    I modified config.yaml as follows and performed a helm upgrade.

          authenticator_class: "null"
  3. I have successfully achieved the following workflow to obtain a user’s server URL through API calls:

    1. User creation
      • POST HUB_URL/hub/api/user/{user_name}
    2. User API token creation
      • POST HUB_URL/hub/api/user/{user_name}/tokens
    3. User server creation
      • POST HUB_URL/hub/api/user/{user_name}/server
    4. Obtaining the user server address and checking its status
      • GET HUB_URL/hub/api/user/{user_name}
  4. After confirming that servers.ready has become true in step 3.4, I attempted to run JupyterLab in the browser using the following user server URL:

    • HUB_URL/user/{user_name}/?token={user_api_token}

JupyterLab runs as expected, but icons are broken, and when I inspect the developer tools, I see websocket connection failures.

Could you please assist me in identifying where I might be going wrong? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

I suspect you are hitting this error, where cookie auth is not persisted from a token-in-url-authenticated request when using the new jupyterhub server extension. The workaround while waiting for a release is to use the older subclass implementation of jupyterhub-singleuser by setting JUPYTERHUB_SINGLEUSER_EXTENSION=0.

JUPYTERHUB_SINGLEUSER_EXTENSION=0 fixed the problem for me, when I connect to the single user directly, however when I use an iframe, the problems persists. Anyone have any incite?

For i frame i recommend use SSL connection for jupyterhub that fixes the problem.

I’ve double-checked, but I still encounter this issue.

Looking at the output logs, it seems that the problem persists because authentication information is not being stored in the cookie when /…/kernelspecs/python3/logo-svg.svg is redirected to /hub/api/oauth2/authorize.
