SplunkJS SDK: Getting error "Request header field X-Splunk-Form-Key is not allowed by Access-Control-Allow-Headers" after migrating to 6.5.x

Hi all,

I have a custom web page calling Splunk services using SplunkJS SDK. After migrating to 6.5, the page started failing with this message:

XMLHttpRequest cannot load https://(hostname):(port)/services/auth/login?output_mode=json. Request header field X-Splunk-Form-Key is not allowed by Access-Control-Allow-Headers. 

The code is the following:

function getJSONConnectionParams(username,password,hostname){
     return JSON.parse('{"username":"'+username+'","password":"'+password+'","scheme":"https","host":"'+hostname+'","port":8089}');
}

var http = new splunkjs.JQueryHttp();
var service = new splunkjs.Service(http,getJSONConnectionParams(splunkCurrentUser,currentPassword,getHostName()));

service.login(function(err) { ... }

The error shows up when the login function is called.

Splunk Web UI and Management port are using HTTPS, both certificates are the same. Also the crossOriginReference is enabled on the server.conf file.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks and regards,

Looking at the splunkjs code I found the "SplunkWebHttp" which seems to be using the standard " /splunkd/__raw" path.
Replacing the line:

var http = new splunkjs.JQueryHttp();

with

var http = new splunkjs.SplunkWebHttp();

Solved the issue.

I couldn't find any documentation about this. Seems all samples assume you want to use a proxy server.
