JIRA REST API call from web application

I am trying to build web application from where my users can log issues related to application. Issues will be created in JIRA directly using rest api. I am trying to do the same but getting following error.

XMLHttpRequest cannot load…nd+issue+type+names+using+the+REST+API&fields%5Bissuetype%5D%5Bname%5D=Bug. No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://localhost:8000' is therefore not allowed access.


Tried different solutions mentions in Q&A section. But nothings work. Any help will be appreciated.

Could you post the full request you're making to JIRA?

Following is the piece of code I use to make request to JIRA.

     json = {
        "fields": {
                  "key": "SV"
          "summary": "Create Trail issue.",
          "description": "Creating of an issue using project keys and issue type names using the REST API",
          "issuetype": {
                   "name": "Bug"
      type: "GET",
      url: "",
      dataType: "JSON",
      contentType: "application/json;",
      data: json,
      success: function (){
            console.log('Thanks for your comment!');
