(Node.js, Passport, Google OAuth) After google oauth login with Passport.js, subsequent api request doesn't send cookie along (only deployment)

PLEASE help us help you by writing a good post!

  • we need to know your netlify site name. Example: gifted-antelope-58b104.netlify.app
  • DNS issues? Tell us the custom domain, tell us the error message! We can’t help if we don’t know your domain.
  • Build problems? Link or paste the FULL build log & build settings screenshot

The better the post - the faster the answer.

Hi team,

I have deployed an app through netlify : https://my-recipe-note-app.netlify.app/

I have attached google oauth login and it seems I have successfully receive set-cookie header and cookie set after google callback api.
However, after receiving cookies, subsequent api request (api/current_user) has to send along cookie toward backend but it is omitting cookie. On localhost it works fine but after frontend deployment it doesn’t work.
When I send request directly toward backend, it also works fine so I guess it is problem from client side after deployment.

here is my frontend repository(public) GitHub - YeonhaPark/my-recipe-note-front: frontend for my recipe note project

here is my backend cookie setup source code

passport.serializeUser((user, done) => {
  console.log('serialize user called', user);
  return done(null, user.id);

// turn id into user model instance
passport.deserializeUser((id, done) => {

  User.findOne({ where: { id } }).then((user) => {
    return done(null, user);

  new GoogleStrategy(
      clientID: googleClientId,

      callbackURL: '/auth/google/callback',
      proxy: true,
    (accessToken, refreshToken, profile, done) => {
      User.findOne({ where: { googleId: profile.id } }).then((existingUser) => {
        if (existingUser) {
          console.log('existing user', existingUser);
          done(null, existingUser);
        } else {
          // make a new record
          console.log('new user');
          new User({ googleId: profile.id })
            .then((user) => done(null, user));

I also have set netlify related files but it doesn’t work

/api/* https://my-recipe-note-back.herokuapp.com/:splat 200

Is it something related with netlify settings ? What would be the reason that blocks the cookie?

Hey there, @YeonhaPark :wave:

Thanks for your patience, and welcome to the Netlify Forums! I want to assure you we have not forgotten about your question. For transparency, I have looped in the relevant team at Netlify and a member of Support will follow up once we have some next steps for you.

Thanks :netlisparkles:

Hey @YeonhaPark,

Sorry for the delay here. Is there a test account that we can have to test this?
