I currently have prodigy exposed inside my company's network as a containerized application running in AWS. Users are authenticated through AWS's load balancer using Okta.
When users submit an answer, I am using the
validate_answer callback to send the results to a bucket in S3. About every 20-30 answers I am getting an authentication error from Okta that originates from the
validate_answer function that gets included in the
bundle.js. I found one work around in the Okta developer forum (https://devforum.okta.com/t/blocked-by-cors-policy-when-redirect-to-authorize/10135/6) but it requires that I make an HTTP request from the client-side. I tried to use
requests to make the call from the custom recipe that I'm using, but it doesn't seem to work. Is there any way to make a request from the client side?
Hi! So if I understand the question correctly, you want to make a request from the Prodigy web app, not the server (which would be any code in a custom recipe), right? One option could be to use the
How important is it to you that the answers are sent to the bucket in real time before each submission? It seems like the
update callback with a lower batch size might be a better fit and will require fewer requests. The
validate_answer callback is called on every submission and it will fire multiple times if you undo etc., so it feels a little overkill. But of course, there are always use cases where it does make sense.
That's exactly what I needed! Also that's a good suggestion to use
update instead. Thanks for the help, Ines!
