CORS Problem

I'm running Taiga in a docker container on a server that then uses an nginx proxy so I can access it from the outside world. I _believe_ I just updated the docker images to the latest version (although, I'm having difficulty knowing exactly which version of Taiga I'm running... is there a way in the UI to check the version?) Whenever I move something in the backlog (either to a sprint or reorder it in the backlog itself), I am taken to the "Something happened..." view, and the following error messages are in the console:

Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at (Reason: CORS header ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ missing).

It _does_ actually perform the move, however, so while this is a little annoying, it is workable for the time being. My suspicion is that something is messed up in my configuration. Could someone give me a bit of help on how to troubleshoot this?

Thank you!


P.S. For those of you in the United States, I hope you have a happy and safe Independence day!

Hi Scott,

I will try to answer your questions

- About the taiga version:

there is no way in the UI to check the version, you only find the version number in the source code. Using the latest docker version is a good method to be updated.

- About the error:

I don't have enough information to know where is the problems. The first message (the 404) is not an error, in fact it's an expected answer, and the second one is very generic and probably has nothing to do with the actual error. You have to share with us your settings (taiga and nginx settings) to try to find out where the problem may be. You can check (and share with us) the network tab in the browser development tools and check the logs of the docker images (specially taiga-back).

Sorry for not being able to offer the solution, I need more info to discover the cause of your error.

Best Regards

PD: I don't live in USA, but I hope you enjoyed the Independence day!

Thank you David.

The issue I was having was, as I suspected, related to an nginx configuration. I had to set the headers manually in the nginx configuration for the proxy.

Thank you for your help!

Hi Scott,
I seem to be having a simiar issue. Can you please tell me what proxy settings in nginx configuration I need to set manually and what that means?
