I have encountered a problem with trying to get authentication working.
To start with, I am developing my web app on the same machine that hosts the AF server and PI Web API. To attempt to diagnose the problem, I am using the CORS Testing app from the training video.
When I attempt to use basic authentication, I get:
Which is similar to the error expected when a request from a domain not listed in the CorsOrigins attribute. When I look into the request header, the Origin header is like this:
Since the request is from the same machine, I don't see how CORS is even relevant, but if the browser is getting this response, who am I to argue.
In the browser, my "URL" is "file:///C:/User/....etc....etc.../cors_app.html". I noticed that all the PI Web API tutorials appear to be using a locally hosted webserver (i.e. URL = http://localhost:12343). Before I go an install WAMP or figure out how to use IIS, is there something simple I can do to get this working. My web apps work fine when I don't use authentication.
