It looks like MetacatUI will not be able to access the NSF award REST API since they only have it available over HTTP. Since our registry is always loaded over HTTPS, browsers will block the request.

This makes use of the ProxyPass Apache settings in order to work.

I emailed NSF about enabling HTTPS for their Award API. This is their response:

Hello Lauren Walker,

Awards API access over HTTPS is not planned in the short term but that it will be brought to NSF for their consideration.

Thank you,

We should seriously consider proxying this service anyways. Daily updates would be more than adequate, so if we run a server-side service that asks for the NSF data daily, then would be available in digested form from our local addresses over https, we should be all set.

I set up a proxy on dev.nceas.ucsb.edu to access the Awards API and it is working well. I will set it up on arcticdata.io too when I upgrade MetacatUI there.
