Known issues

Dev certificate issue with Chrome (v58-)

  • Date - 28th of April
  • Updated - 2nd of May

If you are using Chrome as your development browser, you might have challenges with the developer certificate regardless of executing gulp trust-dev-cert command. Chrome has changed its model for certificate validation starting from version 58 and you might see "Your connection is not private" warning when you are accessing the local workbench.

You should update your Yeoman template packages. We have updated certification creation logic in the @microsoft/gulp-core-build-serve package. In existing solutions, you can simply delete this folder and run npm install to get the updated package. You will also need to execute untrust-dev-cert and trust-dev-cert commands in your machine to address the certification creation logic issue.
