Hi everyone,

In this article we will see how to enable withCredentials config in you Angular project. Before going further let us see the requirement of using withCredentials, in the following link you can find the description of withCredential - https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/CORS#Requests_with_credentials

 angular.module("App", [])
     .controller("Ctrl", function ($scope, $http) {
 
         var URL = "https://mywebapi/api/names";
         var requestHeader = {
             getHeader: {
                 'headers': {
                     'accept': 'application/json;odata=verbose'
                 }
             }
         };
 
         var result = $http.get(URL, requestHeader.getHeader)
             .then(function (response) {
                 var data = JSON.parse(response.data);
                 $scope.values = data
                 console.log(data);
                 return data;
             });
     })
     .config(['$httpProvider', function ($httpProvider) {
         $httpProvider.defaults.withCredentials = true;
     }])
 
Happy Coding

Ahamed
