Excel JavaScript Add-in - Remote web service request silently fails RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using the Excel add-in code generated by the Yo office generator. For testing, that setup launches a local node server. Its initial output is

    You already have trusted access to https://localhost.
    Certificate: C:\Users\bill\.office-addin-dev-certs\localhost.crt
    Key: C:\Users\bill\.office-addin-dev-certs\localhost.key

    Within Excel, clicking a button in my Task Panel attempts to perform a remote service request. I have tried jQuery ajax, fetch, and XMLHttpRequest against https://www.google.com. I have added google.com and www.google.com as AppDomains in manifestxml.

    I do not get any replies or exceptions. I have not found anything on the web regarding this

    development scenario. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
