Client Rest and AJAX calls



I'm writing a plugin with a similar drill down functionality as the APM Portal PurePath link (not sure if this is a thing anymore). Can anyone advise me how that worked or how that might work?

The plugin is for another tool, which is a web portal on which I am logged in via HTTPS. Three options I've tried so far:

  • Create a normal anchor link to the client interface. Causes to navigate to another page which just says "OK" or something, then the client does its thing
  • Call the endpoint via JQuery over HTTP. Worked for me in testing but when I pushed it to the production portal (secured via HTTPS) I got a security error from trying to make an XHR call to an unsecured endpoint
  • Call the endpoint via JQuery over HTTPS. Causes an issue due to the self-signed cert on the client rest interface.

There are workarounds here but they all involve end-user intervention, which is not ideal. Any thoughts? Hoping to publish this integration in a blog post and present on it at Perform next month.
