403 response from AEM for .json http calls from Apache


Level 1

Request URL :

Request Method: GET

Status Code: 403 Forbidden  

Above is the Http call happening from Apache to local CQ5.

Except .json calls, remaining http calls that were happening from Apache to CQ 5 are getting Successfull.

Only for .json content call, We are getting 403 response.

Could this be some issue with CQ5 or Apache ?

These .json call are getting success on Mac PC. They are failing on Windows.

How to fix this issue ?

Do you have dispatcher between them, if yes then check for filter for allowed path.

403 is mainly triggered if you don't have permission/request are blocked.

Can you explain when it is working for Mac and not in window.

Where is CQ and Apache server install, Mac or Windows?
