Widgets playground cannot fetch resource

I am following the documentation [1] to test my custom widget in the Widgets playground. Whenever I try to load my custom widget I get a balloon with NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource, and I don't even see a request coming in in my localhost server. This server is serving through https, and I can access it by going to https://localhost:port directly without any problems.

I am serving the contents of my folder that contains just index.html, index.js, and manifest.json. Zipping that folder and uploading it as a custom widget does work - but is too much of a hassle for development - so I am quite sure that my widget itself is working correctly.

Any tips for setting this widget up in the Widgets playground?

Hi there.

First thing to check is browser console. Does it reveal any errors then you're trying to upload the widget?

The browser console shows the following errors:

1. Cross Origin Request blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows reading the remote resource at https://localhost:8080/manifest.json. (Reason: CORS request did not succeed). Even though I have added localhost:8080 (and https://localhost:8080) to the allowed origins in the Global settings of my YouTrack server.

2. TypeError: NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource.

3. Uncaught (in promise) TypeError: NetworkError when attempting to fetch resource.

So it means something is messing up CORS headers in your environment. 

Is there a reverse proxy installed in front of YouTrack? Nginx, Apache, or IIS maybe?

Not that I know of. I'm on a free plan, using .myjetbrains.com to access the YouTrack server.

That means we can safely rule server-side configuration issues out.

The next thing to check is a webpack server config file, which is responsible for CORS headers on the local machine. Do you have one? If you do, what's inside and where it resides?
