Unable to call Rest API in my application from Jira


I am working on a AngularJS web application(http://localhost:3000/ ) runs on a node.js server(on windows system) and for the application I need to access JIRA REST API(e.g ) using AngularJS service(http Ajax call).


Now when I am trying accessing the API the request is could be made due the cross server origin issue

I can access the JIRA url from windows system now but whenever I am trying some API call to the url it doesn’t allowing to access the url and the below issue is showing

“No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource.


JIRA is installed on Linux system using Docker Container.

JIRA doesn't have CORS support enabled ( https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-30371 ) unless you add the incoming url to the whitelist https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Configuring+the+Whitelist
