I want to fetch all the sites that I'm following but want to eliminate those that don't have newsfeed/site feed enabled.

There is a REST endpoint to fetch all the sites that I'm following:


This rest endpoint gives me all the sites that I am following but doesn't tell me anything about if that site has newsfeed or not.

So I have to make another REST call to this one:


The problem is that I am not in SharePoint context. I am doing all this in an AngularJS app and when I try to access this endpoint, I get an exception:

XMLHttpRequest cannot load /_api/web/features/getById(guid'15a572c6-e545-4d32-897a-bab6f5846e18'). No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin '' is therefore not allowed access.

Is there any better way to deal with this? Do I need to set a header in my REST call to not get this cross domain exception?


  • Try: executor = new SP.RequestExecutor(webUrl); executor.executeAsync and then use url as"/_api/SP.AppContextSite(@target)/web/features...

  • Hey Aveenav, As I mentioned I am doing this in angularjs app so i don't have SharePoint context. The solution you proposed works well if i am building sharepoint hosted apps for example. Jun 19, 2014 at 7:55
