No ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header is present on the requested resource

Hi Experts,

I am calling rest api "" form JIRA plugin using jquery. But i am getting Error"No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource" in browser. If i disable security of browser then my api is working. Kindly help me how to resolve this JIRA.

     type: "GET",
    async: false,
    beforeSend: function(xhr){
			        	xhr.setRequestHeader ("Authorization", "Basic " +  btoa(user_name+'@'+tenant_id+":" + passwords));
			        success: function (data) { 

XMLHttpRequest cannot load$select=use…-05T23:59:59.999%27&$format=JSON&$orderby=personIdExternal&_=1491373787424. Response to preflight request doesn't pass access control check: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://user:2990' is therefore not allowed access. The response had HTTP status code 401

We split our developer and user communities. You will probably have better luck with API questions on the The Atlassian Developer Community.
