To solve this issue we just need to enable CORS in an application. Here I’ll share one best way to solve Access-Control-Allow-Origin Header error.

Open web.config file and find “<system.webServer>” tag. Copy following code and paste inside that tag.

      <httpProtocol>
  <customHeaders>
    <add name="Access-Control-Allow-Origin" value="*" />
    <add name="Access-Control-Allow-Headers" value="Content-Type" />
    <add name="Access-Control-Allow-Methods" value="GET,POST,PUT,DELETE,OPTIONS" />
    <add name="Access-Control-Allow-Credentials" value="true" />
  </customHeaders>
</httpProtocol>

Your web.config will look like this.

And done, after applying this thing Access-Control-Allow-Origin Header error will be gone.
