portal light, 'try it out' TypeError: Failed to fetch

HI,

After creating an Api Product (proxy-mock-target-product), and adding it to my Portal, i can see it on the portal.

If I click on this, I get to the swagger test page. But when I try to execute any of the methods, I see a 200 success, but also a 'TypeError: Failed to fetch'.

The Curl cmd shown in the UI is valid and returns the expected response if i run it on a server. The url in the curl cmd, loaded into a browser, also returns the expected response.

So why doesn't this test page return the expected response?

Can you check and share with us the error you're getting in your browser's console? It may be your application needs to send back a Access-Control-Allow-Origin: * header in order to communicate.

I see this in the console. Is https a requirment when using the portal light swagger test page for a given Api?

VM41:39 Mixed Content: The page at 'https://samuelucich-trial-myportal.apigee.io/#/default/View_a_personalized_greeting' was loaded over HTTPS, but requested an insecure resource 'http://samuelucich-trial-test.apigee.net/proxy-mock-target-api/'. This request has been blocked; the content must be served over HTTPS.

Browsers will restrict mixed content. If a page is served via HTTPS, and an unsecured
XHR call is made from the page, it will be blocked.

https://developers.google.com/web/fundamentals/security/prevent-mixed-content/fixing-mixed-content?h...

In this case since the portal is served via HTTPS, all calls made from API spec must use HTTPS as well. So you are correct, it is a requirement that your API serve its endpoints via HTTPS, and they should be documented as such in the spec.
