CORS support in Azure Cosmos DB

Posted on 04 December 2018

Now generally available, Azure Cosmos DB offers service-level, global CORS (cross-origin resource sharing) support which enables web browser-based applications to directly connect to Azure Cosmos DB. CORS is an HTTP (hyper-text transfer protocol) feature that enables web applications running on one domain to request resources from another domain. This new support offers functionality and security for cross-origin requests to developers using Azure Cosmos DB via the JavaScript SDK.
