Kendo UI Builder: Error creating data provider

  • Hi, I have created my first test App using Kendo UI builder and I am getting an error when creating the first data provider:

    Error creating data provider

    Unexpected token <

    What can I do to analize this? Is there any log file or console availalbe that might have more details about the error?

  • Looks like the "<" is the beginning of the login page ... my catalog URL requires authentication.

    Is it a known limitation that KBUI cannot create data sources when the catalog requires (form-based) authentication?

  • Hi Mike,
     
    Currently this is a limitation in KUIB. At development time catalogs must be unprotected to work with KUIB. At deployment time we can protect the catalogs. Please keep a copy of protected catalog file somewhere in unprotected location and then try to create the data provider.
     
    Thanks,

  • OK – thanks.
     
    I am not maintaining catalog files. We are generating them for various reasons on the fly.
     
    So for dev time, I’ll have to configure Tomcat to let the catalog requests through without auth.

  • You might try basic digest instead, Rollbase only supports that but then again there you must supply the catalog file not the URL so that’s not for development time… maybe saving the catalog and use the flat json file can work with KUIB as well.

  • The catalog is retrieved from a URI on the backend. And there is no way to provide credentials.

  • yeah, authentication is overrated anyway :p


  • Hi All-

    Just an FYI that I am going to move this post to the dedicated Kendo UI Builder group that was recently launched.

    Thanks
