Cross-domain requests

If you want to get data from TYPO3 for use on another website via the REST API, you'll need to explicitly tell the REST extension to allow access. You can do so by adding the necessary definition in plugin.tx_rest.settings. This step is necessary even if you're using a similar configuration elsewhere in the same installation: for example in .htaccess or a third-party extension like CORS.

By controlling the access in your TYPO3 installation, client-side workarounds (like JSONP in jQuery $.ajax) aren't necessary.

Example

An example which will allow the site example.com to make GET requests.

plugin.tx_rest.settings {
    responseHeaders {
        Access-Control-Allow-Origin = example.com
        Access-Control-Allow-Methods = GET
    }
}
