Can't store JWT token to cookie on REST client #676

Steps to reproduce

on the server:

"cookie": { "enabled": true, "name": "feathers-jwt", "httpOnly": false, "secure": false, "domain": "localhost" }
app.use(cors({ origin: "http://localhost:8080", credentials: true }));
on the client I use axios:

Vue.axios.defaults.withCredentials = true

I make post to /authentication and receive setCookie on the response.


After this I make POST request to a service. In this POST I see cookie:


and receive 401 error. In the server I see:

error: NotAuthenticated: No auth token

Expected behavior

I think, I must receive code 200 in response

Actual behavior

I receive 401 no token

Using the Feathers client you have to call app.authenticate() with no parameters as documented. No manual cookie setting or messing with session ids necessary.

@daffl I have the same problem, I'm using Vue js and as an end point /authentication but I can not read the Set-Cookie: feathers-jwt. Some suggestion is the same inconvenience I can see the token in the inspector but I can not read it.
