Getting CORS error and 403 on the file(s) that is dependent to the actual CDN file link on Spaces Object Storage


I have created a folder on our digital ocean space objects where we store the javascript files and json. When I call that specific json on my website, I get the file with no error but in order to make it fully work, it has other js files within that folder that I created in the Digital Ocean. Those other js files are the ones triggering the 403 and CORS error. I already added different headers to test, but it doesn’t work. I even purged the cache but still, no success.

Here’s the dependency file that’s triggering the error. image alt text

Any thoughts on this?

Does your domain use HTTPS? As far as I can tell from the screenshot you’ve defined the domain with https, but if you are only using http, this might cause the discrepancy.

Also, the 403 error usually indicates a permissions issue. Can you verify that the files you are trying to access have the appropriate permissions set? Eg. they should be publicly accessible if they are to be fetched by a browser.

Would you mind sharing the complete error if you were to click on the CORS error in your console?
