Strapi Connect Endpoint 500 Internal Server Error

I have Strapi installed on Azure VM. trying to connect to the /api/connect/microsoft endpoint to do authorization with active directory. Everything works locally but on the server it keeps giving me a 500 internal server error. Strapi on Azure vm is set up with nginx.

This is what we found in the logs

1|strapi-prod  | [2022-02-18 22:59:00.277] http: GET /api/connect/microsoft (60 ms) 302

Any help is appreciated!

Answer

I am not using Stapi but the answer is in the error message:

Error: Cannot send secure cookie over unencrypted connection

It means that without using https, in your cookie configuration you should have:

secure: false

exemple:

{
  ...
  httpOnly: true,
  maxAge: 24*60*60*1000,
  secure: false // if true only send cookie over https
  ...
}
