Hi @ayorcodes

Is this a new project?
Where does this error comes from? your agent starting, or the forest CLI?

Which agent are you using?
Did you use the stable agent (forest-express-sequelize) or the new version (agent-nodejs@beta) tjat we’re currently rolling out?

the error comes from here
// Replace myNestApp by your NestJS application

i am running nestjs node
these are the packages i am using
@forestadmin/agent”: “^1.0.0-beta.43”,
@forestadmin/datasource-sql”: “^1.0.0-beta.40”,

Can you try appending ?ssl=true to your database connection URI?


If your database is using a self-signed certificate (common in development), you may want to use


the second options works!!! thanks
now there is a new error

Now i get cors error on the dashbaord

can you copy as curl the failing request and run it in a terminal to get the actual error? (simply open in a new tab if its a GET request)

your browser is hiding the response because the errors does not contains cors headerss

with curl i get response

i’ve gotten it to work,
