405 when calling login from the SockShop Microservices Demo Application

I am getting a 405 when calling login from the SockShop Microservices Demo Application.
The login call works fine when running outside of the mesh.
I do believe that end user authentication should be removed from the web app and moved to the mesh level based on istio docs


But can anyone shed a little light as to what is going on here?
Tnx
