How to integrate Netlify Functions with a React application using Next.js - Emmanuel Katto

Hi everyone, I am Emmanuel Katto from Uganda. I’m building a web application using Next.js and React, and I’m looking to integrate it with Netlify Functions. I’ve set up my project using the create-next-app command and have written some serverless functions using Netlify Functions. However, I’m having trouble figuring out how to integrate the two.

Specifically, I’m trying to use a Netlify Function to handle authentication and authorization for my Next.js app. I’ve created a function that checks for valid authentication credentials and returns a JSON response if they’re valid. However, I’m not sure how to call this function from my Next.js app.

I’ve tried using the next/headers API to send a request to the Netlify Function, but I’m getting a 405 Method Not Allowed error. I’ve also tried using Axios to make a GET request to the function URL, but that doesn’t seem to work either.

Can anyone provide guidance on how to properly integrate Netlify Functions with a Next.js application? Are there any specific configurations or settings that need to be set up in order to make this work?
