CORS angularjs

  • Last Post 12 April 2018 posted this 09 April 2018

I'm implementing your  API. I encountered a problem with query POST with basic authentication.

It's because of don't handle query OPTIONS by yours API. This is my error:

angular.js:10967 OPTIONS 404 (Not Found).

When I have turned off CORS on browser chrome, then everything works fine. 

Will OPTIONS be ever available? OR maybe some tips for me. How I can implement this without proxy middleware, and thirdy party API.

Best wishes

ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK does not support the cross-domain requests (the CORS mechanism) because of the security reasons. In order to send the request from the page you need to pass the login and password to the application in this request, and it is very easy to get this data from the page code. So, it is impossible to use the service in such way. You should use the server component instead.

According to our product analyst, we do not plan to change this.
