I have two Web Applications on the same SharePoint Farm, intranet.company.com and associates.company.com

I'm trying to pull user data with a REST call from the intranet site like this:


This works when calling from intranet web application just fine.

BUT not if I am calling it from the associates web application. The error is:

Response to preflight request doesn't pass access control check: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource

I don't want to use Visual Studio to install an app to get an AppContextSite reference. Is there a way to bypass this, perhaps a server setting in IIS on the farm?


  • Sounds like CORS isn't set up properly on your server. CORS allows rest calls to make cross domain calls. – Roland Sep 9 '16 at 0:05
