Bearer Authorization Headers with saveAs proxy
Is it possible to set Authorization headers when using a proxy with the kendo-file-saver saveAs function? The controller method I am trying to use as the proxy is protected by JWT Bearer token authorization.

Unfortunately we are serving many different file types.

Please do open up a feature request to set JWT Bearer Authorization headers for the proxyURL in saveAs. 

We've worked around this for now using a separate library, but saveAs would be much cleaner.

 

Thanks!

Hello, Spencer,

If this is for PDF files, I can suggest the following approach.

Convert the file to a Base64 string and programmatically make the request with the generated string with a library like axios:

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/51586458/how-to-pass-header-jwt-token-with-axios-react/51588921

Also, if you wish I can convert this to a public feature request, where the community can vote for this feature to be added to the saveAs method.
