Git: General Settings tab in a bucket times out while loading – connector endpoint URL blocked by CORS


This article explains an issue with the General settings tab for a particular bucket, which times out after loading for a prolonged time.

Where is the problem and how to solve it?

To troubleshoot this issue, proceed as follows:

  1. Open the browser's developer tools (see How to use browser's developer tools (Dev Tools) for help).

  2. In the Console section, you might see the error messages similar to those shown below. They inform us about a 504 error. We can also see that the URL is blocked by the so-called CORS policy.

  1. To prevent this problem from occurring, add the following header to your web server: Access-Control-Allow-Origin: {YOUR_DOMAIN}.

  2. Check if the General Settings tab then functions as intended.
