If you did not solve this problem here's the solution, to make apollo client pass the cookie to the server in every request you need to add credentials: "include" property in your ApolloClient instance

new ApolloClient({
        uri: API_URL,
        credentials: 'include',
        cache: new InMemoryCache(),
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
