Cookie-based authorization gives no cookie

Hello,

I am working on the file permissions for files uploaded by the user.
I have set the user permissions…

I have set the Login Cookie-based Authorization to set the cookie upon succesfull login:

However when the user logs in i see no cookie for the user:

What can be the issue here?

Hello,

Cookies are not stored in Local Storage. You need to check in the Cookies section:

Hi Mark,

When i look there than i see the Cookie:

However in my other application where the file permissions do work i do see the Local Storage as below:

When cookie-based authorization is enabled, a cookie is set. From the screenshot, I see the cookie. Please keep in mind that the cookie will be associated with the domain that is used to make the Login API call. If you fetch files from another domain, that cookie will not apply.

Thanks Mark,

That is my problem, i am on another domain, can i use file permissions without cookies based login?

You can use file permissions without cookies, but it gets tricky since you need to send an HTTP header with every GET request.

It would be easier to configure your app to use the same domain for all requests (API and files).

Hello Mark,

Where can i find documentation on how to use file permissions with the HTTP header with every GET request? Or will the different domain remains a problem?

Hello,

It is documented here:
