jQuery ajax post not working, authorization error... Edited

Hi guys,


I´ve been trying to create an "JIRA Issue" via jquery ajax (cross domain).

I don't want to use cors.

Here follows my code:

$("#buttonPost").click(function () {
type: "POST",
dataType: "json",
crossDomain: true,
processData: false,
url: inputUrl,
data: JSON.stringify(inputData),
headers: {
'Content-Type': 'application/json',
'Authorization': 'Basic *********',
'X-Atlassian-Token': 'no-check',
'Access-Control-Allow-Origin': '*'
success: function (response) {
error: function (error) {

 PS: Authorization token was erased.

Failed to load https://*************:8443/rest/api/2/issue: Response to preflight request doesn't pass access control check: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://localhost:52193' is therefore not allowed access.


Again, I just want to create a new issue on a specific project, using my authorization token.

I´ll be glad if someone help me with it, it´s been a long and hard situation.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Breno, 

A little bit late but posting this with the hopes that you were able to resolve this and the information will help someone else. 

This is a security feature of web browsers called Same Origin Policy. You cannot make an AJAX call to a URL that is on a different domain than where the JavaScript was loaded from (ie. has the "same origin").

There are a number of ways to work around this, the two most common ones are:

  1. Serve your JavaScript from the remote server, instead of the host server.
  2. Make the remote server respond with the correct Cross Origin Resource Sharing ("CORS")headers that will let the browser relax this security policy.

While I see that you do not want to use CORS, please note for CORS, you'll need to configure Jira's whitelist: Configuring the whitelist. More information on this topic can be found in another community post: Rest call to Jira in Jquery results in error No Access Control
