CORS issues on developer portal

Description

You get following errors in the browser console:

Access to fetch at 'https://<Your Gateway URL>/<Your API>/' from origin 'https://<Your Dashboard URL>' has been blocked by CORS policy: Response to preflight request doesn't pass access control check: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. If an opaque response serves your needs, set the request's mode to 'no-cors' to fetch the resource with CORS disabled.
POST https://<Your Gateway URL>/<Your API>/ net::ERR_FAILED

Cause

The CORS middleware in the Gateway is blocking this request. This can happen when the CORS settings of the API are not enabled or misconfigured for the developer portal.

Solution

Make sure that your CORS in the Advanced Options of the API is enabled and the settings are correct. This means:

  • Allowed Origins should allow the developer portal domain
  • Allowed Methods should allow all methods needed for API documentation (at least GET and POST)
  • Allowed Headers should allow at least Origin, Content-Type and for authenticated requests the authorization header (e.g. Authorization)

Note: When creating a new API with Dashboard v3.1 and higher the CORS settings will be prefilled with some default values (but disabled by default).
