Attempting to implement a Web-plugin that imports/uses data published on a webserver.
This works OK if the webserver is the same as where the Web-plugin is published.
But when data is published on different server the browser CORS protection prevents accessing the data.
I’m not a web hacker, but if I understand it correctly to allow this the Server needs to modify the CORS policy by adding the data source location to the “Allow list”. Am I correct in this ?
Would it be possible to add such listing in the plugin setup or installation?
This would allow for a range of quite interesting features:
- Importing and synchronizing JIRA issues without JIRA Integration (our corp. policy does not allow such external access to an internal server)
- Charts and diagrams updated from live data
- Images and other content integrated into Miro
Or is there some other solution?
