Redirect to function on another Netlify site

Site A (frontend): competent-ardinghelli-0dde0e
Site B (data and function): stoic-galileo-1d5a50

I have the following redirect in the netlify.toml for Site A:

  from = "/api/search"
  to = ""
  status = 200
  force = true

The function takes a single query parameter term, and I’m hoping to call

While the redirect appears to work, the request fails in browser (Firefox provides an actual error, while others never return or return empty responses):

curl ing the request also produces an error:

curl: (18) transfer closed with 623 bytes remaining to read

The function itself works as expected both locally and when called directly via Site B.

Is there a way for me to proxy from a URL on Site A to a function call on Site B?

Hey @andrewbridge,
When I try to curl directly, I get a 401. So can you confirm that it returns what you would expect? That way we can at least narrow the issue to being about proxying.

Hi @jen,

Sorry about that, I’ve since put in some basic CORS checks into the function.

If you run:

curl -H "Origin:"\?term\=jackson

You should receive:

{"posts":[{"route":"/reviews/michael-jackson-bad","title":"Bad // Michael Jackson"},{"route":"/reviews/bat-for-lashes-lost-girls","title":"Lost Girls // Bat for Lashes"},{"route":"/reviews/prince-purple-rain","title":"Purple Rain // Prince"},{"route":"/reviews/kate-bush-hounds-of-love","title":"Hounds of Love // Kate Bush"}],"tags":[{"title":"michael jackson","route":"/tags/michael jackson"}]}

(Actual results may vary, but the structure is accurate)

Let me know if there’s any further information I can provide.


Dang, I’ve hit this bug before :frowning: It hasn’t been fixed yet but @luke proposed a solution to a similar problem over here --> Proxying from one app to another Want to give that a try and let us know if it fixes things for you?
