AngularJS Question

Set-cookie in response not set for Angular2 post request

When I make a put request in Angular2, I receive the expected set-cookie in the response. However my browser (tried both Chrome and Firefox) refuses to set the cookie.

Instead when I use an Angular 1 app making a call to the same API endpoint, the cookies are set correctly.

The response headers are:

Date:Thu, 28 Jan 2016 14:41:38 GMT
P3P:policyref="http://www.example.com/p3p.xml", CP="NON DSP COR CURa TIA"
Server:WSGIServer/0.1 Python/2.7.6
Set-Cookie:sessionid=994wl49qfsizog5bqmt57sgx9q2toa25; expires=Mon, 28-Mar-2016 14:41:37 GMT; Max-Age=5183999; Path=/
Set-Cookie:csrf=u7UQhpAphTsGYKRU6jFlLFt6NoYAhNMS; Domain=api.example.com; expires=Thu, 26-Jan-2017 14:41:38 GMT; Max-Age=31449600; Path=/
Vary:Accept, Cookie

The backend is programmed in Django 1.8.

Does anyone experienced the same thing or have a suggestion how to solve this problem?


I seems to be a CORS-related issue. Perhaps you could try to set the withCredentials attribute when executing the HTTP request.

This answer could help you to find out how to do that, especially the Cedric Exbrayat's answer:


You could extend the BrowserXhr:

export class CustomBrowserXhr extends BrowserXhr {
  constructor() {}
  build(): any {
    let xhr = super.build();
    xhr.withCredentials = true;
    return <any>(xhr);

and override the BrowserXhr provider with the extended:

bootstrap(AppComponent, [
  provide(BrowserXhr, { useClass: CustomBrowserXhr })

If you need more hints about CORS, you could have a look at this link: http://restlet.com/blog/2015/12/15/understanding-and-using-cors/.

Hope it helps you, Thierry
