I am not going to go into details of setting up Sitecore, there are many videos out there how to set up Sitecore.
Once Sitecore is set up follow the directions on the official Sitecore JSS site on how to set up Server (https://jss.sitecore.com/docs/getting-started/jss-server-install#server-components-installation)
The last step is to verify if everything is working correctly, let’s get back to Sitecore and create an API key, and test it.
Sitecore > Launchpad > Desktop > Content Editor | Switch to core DB, and navigate to
and create an API Key
Next, we will have to set up our application to communicate with the Sitecore instance.
I imagine that at this time you Sitecore JSS CLI is installed, and a sample app has been created.
Lets now proceed to the next tutorial on How to connect to Sitecore Instance

Thanks for this. Unfortunately the test of the URL returns a 403 denied response. There is no documentation anywhere as to what is causing this or how to fix. From what i can tell, JSS isn’t supported in Sitecore 9.1 yet.
can you share the error, maybe even a screenshot? what is version of JSS are you using with Sitecore 9.1 ?
