[javascript] Cross domain POST request is not sending cookie Ajax Jquery

Seems that something similar already has been discussed on stackoverflow, but i could not find exactly the same.

I am trying to send Cookie with CORS(Cross-origin resource sharing), but it is not working.

This is my code.

$.ajax(
    { 
      type: "POST",
      url: "http://example.com/api/getlist.json",
      dataType: 'json',
      xhrFields: {
           withCredentials: true
      },
      crossDomain: true,
      beforeSend: function(xhr) {
            xhr.setRequestHeader("Cookie", "session=xxxyyyzzz");
      },
      success: function(){
           alert('success');
      },
      error: function (xhr) {
             alert(xhr.responseText);
      }
    }
);

I dont see this cookie in request HEADER.

The answer is


I had this same problem. The session ID is sent in a cookie, but since the request is cross-domain, the browser's security settings will block the cookie from being sent.

Solution: Generate the session ID on the client (in the browser), use Javascript sessionStorage to store the session ID then send the session ID with each request to the server.

I struggled a lot with this issue, and there weren't many good answers around. Here's an article detailing the solution: Javascript Cross-Domain Request With Session


There have been a slew of recent changes in this arena, so I thought a fresh answer would be helpful.

To have a cookie sent by the browser to another site during a request the following criteria must be met:

A lot of people find their way to this post trying to do local development against a remote endpoint, which is possible if the above criteria are met.


Please note this doesn't solve the cookie sharing process, as in general this is bad practice.

You need to be using JSONP as your type:

From $.ajax documentation: Cross-domain requests and dataType: "jsonp" requests do not support synchronous operation.

$.ajax(
    { 
      type: "POST",
      url: "http://example.com/api/getlist.json",
      dataType: 'jsonp',
      xhrFields: {
           withCredentials: true
      },
      crossDomain: true,
      beforeSend: function(xhr) {
            xhr.setRequestHeader("Cookie", "session=xxxyyyzzz");
      },
      success: function(){
           alert('success');
      },
      error: function (xhr) {
             alert(xhr.responseText);
      }
    }
);
