I am creating an angular application, and I want to use the preconfigured 'files' service to store some .pdf files.
I created a folder 'pdfs' and a .pdf file 'testpdf1.pdf', and placed them into the 'files' folder like so: files/pdfs/testpdf1.pdf.
Then I tried to GET testPdf1.pdf in angular like so
For some reason this causes a CORS error. Which is peculiar because
1. I have configured the CORS settings to accept everything
2. I have already successfully communicated to this API without getting a CORS error
3. I can perform the same API call in API Docs and Postman
4. I can do a GET files/pdfs/ without problem
What could be the problem, and what could be done to fix it?
