Hi there,

As far as I can tell your frontend is making the requests to /auth/student/login however your backend API expects the request to be: /student/login.

So when you make the POST request you get 404 with the following output:

<pre>Cannot POST /student/login</pre>

I believe that you just need to configure your backend service to use the correct endpoint: /auth/student/login rather than just /student/login.

Let me know how it goes!

UPDATE: Enabling Preserve path prefix resolved the issue.
