Setting Up Cross-Origin Resource Sharing

Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) is a mechanism that tells browsers to give a web application running at one origin, access to selected resources from a different origin.

To improve the security of NavVis IVION, any domain with a different origin to that of needs explicit permission to be able to access a instance. If, for example, an application hosted on site-a.com embeds NavVis IVION, which is hosted on site-b.com, the application will need to be granted special access.

Procedure

Note: If you update an existing instance, access will initially be allowed from any origin through the * wildcard, to avoid breaking any existing integrations. If you want to restrict or deny cross-origin requests, follow the instructions below.

  1. Go to Instance Settings > Instance Configuration > Security.

  2. If you want to deny any cross-origin requests, leave the  Security box empty.

  3. Otherwise, enter the exact URL of the origin you want to give access to, including the protocol and, if used, the port. If you enter more than one origin, the URLs need to be on separate lines.
