Additional Allowed Origins Enter any number of trusted origins to enable cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) support for the authentication API endpoint.Once configured, client-side web applications from the trusted origins are allowed to make requests to the PingFederate authentication API endpoint. For more information about CORS, see W3C's recommendation on Cross-Origin Resource Sharing. Sample entry Expected behavior https://www.example.com CORS requests originating from https://www.example.com are allowed. https://www.example.com:8080 CORS requests originating from https://www.example.com:8080 are allowed. https://www.example.com:* CORS requests originating from https://www.example.com:<any port> are allowed.Note:
Given this sample entry, a port number is required in the Origin request header.Important:
While using the wildcard character provides the convenience of allowing multiple origins with one entry, consider adding individual origins to limit CORS requests to a list of trusted hosts.
