Proxy not appearing to send a GET request

Question asked by AndyBeck1349826 on Oct 18, 2016

From within an app, it appears I need to change a proxy to use the GET method to read data and not the OPTIONS method. I have attempted to set the 'method' for the proxy but it does not appear to be taking effect.


var operation = new{
  action: 'read',

var proxy = new{
  type: 'ajax',
  url: testURL,
  method: 'GET',
  withCredentials: true
}); operation );


Request Headers from debugger (notice OPTIONS)


OPTIONS /web/datasource?_dc=1476803593106&page=1&start=0&limit=25 HTTP/1.1
Host: <removed>
Connection: keep-alive

The following code works but is not independent of a data store:

var createCORSRequest = function(method, url) {
  var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
  if ("withCredentials" in xhr) {
    // Most browsers., url, true);
  } else if (typeof XDomainRequest != "undefined") {
    // IE8 & IE9
    xhr = new XDomainRequest();, url);
   } else {
     // CORS not supported.
     xhr = null;
  return xhr;

var url = testURL;
var method = 'GET';
var xhr = createCORSRequest(method, url);

xhr.onload = function() {
  // Success code goes here.
  alert( xhr.response );

  xhr.onerror = function() {
  // Error code goes here.

xhr.withCredentials = true;
