Starting the Web Agent

If you are using the web version of APIC, like every web application making web requests to other domains will be limited by CORS. You can get around thsi by using APIC's Web Agent which runs a local agent on your machine. This agent is used for forwarding all https calls. This allows the Web version of APIC to send the requets to the agent and read response from it via Web Sockets bypassing the CORS limitation.

To Learn more about the APIC Web Agent visit https://docs.apic.app/apic-web-agent-apic-cli


apic agent [options] Start the APIC Web Agent


-p, --port <port numver> : 'Specify the port to start thge agent. Default:8008'

Once the agent is up and running you can connect to it from the Web application and forward all your requests.
