    Ajax Error while running Phone Gap Build apk in android device

    Himanshu Joshi Level 1

      Hi All,


      I hope you all are in doing fine and are in fine spirits.


      I have been building a subscription based daily needs app(For Android device) for POC. This is my first venture with this, hence kindly forgive my ignorance.


      The front end used is APP JS and backend used is php on server side and Mongodb as the database.

      The current architecture is running fine on desktop.


      Then i created a config.xml for phone gap and then built the same with Phone Gap build. Then i installed generated apk on my Android device which installed successfully . Now when i try to login from the home page using username and password it throws Ajax error. (I am using Ajax to send GET request to the server where php script will fetch the given username and password from GET parameters and take appropriate action but unfortunately the request is getting failed.)


      I have searched many blogs which stated it is related to config.xml access and CONTENT SECURITY POLICY. I tried various solutions offered but to no avail.


      NOTE: I am running my apache server on local host and the url used for GET request from AJAX call is .


      Below i am attaching my APPJS and config.xml code below for reference.

      Thanks in advance guys.

          you didn't include the Whitelist plugin from npm. You should, in order for the whitelisting to work.


          Unrelated: you can't use feature elements. If you want device functions, use the Device plugin from npm.
