hey, i have an embedded shopify cli node app (, and am trying to make requests from the react frontend to custom routes on the server ive created. ive tried including the 'X-Shopify-Access-Token' and 'Authorization' headers with the correct access token from app-bridge-utils 'getSessionToken()' but receive a 302 redirect with some html that appears to be attempting to authenticate, but im expecting a json response. using axios for the requests

in the network call, i see the following response header: location: /auth?shop=undefined, and my route is never being triggered on the server

any help would be much appreciated!
