I see you are using a template language. When your site is run, View Source, and confirm you see the right client ID there.

I'm having a similar issue with this trying to utilize ionic capacitor, so my domain on the app is capacitor://localhost . I have created a localhost key, but still getting the error "This application domain (capacitor://localhost) is not authorized to use the provided PDF Embed API Client ID" - Any suggestions on resolving this issue?

If you used https://localhost, that is not the same as capacitor://localhost.

Yep, not surprised, as it's not a valid domain. I don't think you will be able to use PDF Embed w/ Capicitor, or Cordova in general.

Thanks for the response - so is there no wildcard or workaround for this i.e. no way for Adobe to allow adding the capacitor://localhost to an approved domain?

it works for me, following these steps:

1. create a credential as "localhost" domain

2. generate the html or whatever you'r using

3. in VS CODE use the extension live server ( opens a port  available ) in my case :5500 or just open the port manually

4. in your browser, for me ( chrome ) it would look like these 127.0.0.1:5500/path/path/yourfile.html

 

5. change the url to localhost:5500/path/path/yourfile.html

127.0.0.1 is the same as localhost, and our domain for the API KEY is localhost so...

 

NOW IT WORKS!

 

note: if you use the port :8080 it should be work in your browser with localhost as URL, this is why 8080 is the web default port.

I cannot create a credential for "localhost". I used the adobe developer console and got an error.

Could you explain in more detail how you created the credentials?

I just tried the exact same thing (ie. I set Allowed doman to localhost) and I'm getting the 'API configuration failed' error like Anna did.

Any clue why?

ok, I just tried again with a brand new project and it worked.  Don't know what was wrong with my initial attempt, but as long as it works, I'm fine.

I have created the localhost key. and it worked with https://localhost But not working for app://localhost.

Is both URLs different? If yes then how to create a key for "app://localhost"?

I have been facing this issue since 25 Apr 2023 before this it was working for both https://localhost and app://localhost.

I have an iOS mobile app developed with Cordova, using Cordova-ios 6.2.0. In this version, the default URL scheme is app:// and a hostname can be configured in the config.xml file. So the requests from the mobile app to the backend all originate from the app://localhost.
And I have created the API key for "localhost", Which was not working.

As far as I know, it's only going to be supported via https://, http://, not app://. I could be wrong, but I don't think we ever supported web view usage. I used to do quite a bit of Cordova, but haven't in a long time so I don't have any easy way to test.

I hate to say it (as a past Cordova developer), but you are probably just out of luck.
