Using non-secure URL (HTTP) as resource for data source


I cannot hit my api endpoints directly. Every time I try the test I get an error about the server supporting CORS. I checked and we do not support this, have to proxy. So my question is, if I find an API proxy that is NOT https, will it work? The error message says “Not supported” so i’m assuming no. If it HAS to be HTTPS, can I use a self signed cert on the proxy or is it implied the device running the application (an iPhone) would have to trust the cert?

Sorry for the vagueness. Using this as I’m a network guy with very little API knowledge and not at all a programmer.


Hi. Sorry for the belated answer – are you still looking for solutions to this or did you find a way forward?
