I have sharepoint 2013 site as public facing migrated from 2010. I have one page where I am getting items from the list using rest api. when i access this page without login as an anonymous user it asking me credential popup.

Seems like it is CORS issue. any kind of help will be appreciated.

Did you enable anonymous access for the list? To access the page anonymously, you need to make sure the list also could be accessed for anonymous users.

  • I have given the anonymous user read permission but it also not able to access the list

  • Did you disable " Limited Access user permission lockdown mode" feature at site collection level? If not, please disable it,then test again. social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/…

It does look like a CORS problem. There is a thread that has some suggestions here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/33367758/enable-cors-in-sharepoint-2013
