API Authentication Error


Hi there. I am new to DreamFactory and I have created an app and service and I am just trying to get connected to the API endpoint I have created using AngularJS.

I can do a simple request to my API using Postman in Google Chrome by just adding Authorization and X-DreamFactory-Application-Name Headers with the relevant Base64 encoded username +’:’ + password and using the app name. This connects perfectly and returns JSON from my database.

In AngularJS however passing the same two headers I get an error about the Authroization header. If I remove it of course I get a CORS error.

XMLHttpRequest cannot load https://dsp-mydspname.cloud.dreamfactory.com/rest/portfolio/Project. Request header field Authorization is not allowed by Access-Control-Allow-Headers.

In Angular I am using this method to set the headers (using the same password that works using Postman:

$http.defaults.headers.common['Authorization'] = 'Basic dG1iam9obXXXXXFpbC5jb2XXXXXXXNdW0gTm8gXXXXXXM=';

I have guest users and CORS enabled and * set for the GET method. Am I missing something?


Resolved : There must have been a caching issue as I disabled the Authorization header again and now I get the return in the browser. Any insights into the correct process would be appreciated.
