Reference local geojson file in custom visual



I have a custom visual that shows polygons in Google Maps taken from a geojson file using:
Using the google example referencing an external file works fine:'');
However, referencing the exact same file locally does not work:'google.json');
Do I miss something here?

As a workaround I tried to reference the file from a CDN:'');


but now it throws an error that the file request has been 'blocked by CORS policy'.


Access to XMLHttpRequest at '' from origin 'null' has been blocked by CORS policy: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource.

Do I need to configure the debug server in some way?
