Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) is an HTTP feature that can restrict how clients request your content. In this course, Microsoft Azure Developer: Configuring CORS Access for Storage, you will learn foundational knowledge of how CORS rules can be enabled, configured, and used with Azure Storage services. First, you will see how CORS works in practice. Next, you will discover how Azure Storage evaluates CORS rules. Finally, you will explore how to configure rules with common Azure SDKs and tooling. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of configuring CORS needed to manage cross-origin requests to your Azure Storage services.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Kamran Ayub, and welcome to my course, Configuring CORS Access for Storage, part of the Microsoft Azure developer course catalog here at Pluralsight. I'm a technologist, speaker, and of course, Pluralsight author based in the Midwest, and I've been working with Azure throughout most of my career, so I am super excited to bring you this course. Now you might have brushed up against CORS when working with client-side ajax requests, but it can also be a powerful way to tell browsers how to restrict and request content from your Azure storage services. I'm going to be talking about how to implement Cross-Origin Resource Sharing or CORS for short with Azure Storage Services, and since I love being hands-on there's going to be plenty of demos. We'll learn how CORS rules work outside of and within Azure Storage, and cover topics like CORS scenarios and usage, automation with Azure tools and SDKs, CORS restrictions in different environments, and how rules get evaluated by Azure Storage. By the end of this course you'll learn how CORS works in general as an HTTP security feature and how to use it when configuring Azure Storage Services. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with how Azure works and how to create and manage Azure Storage accounts, but you don't need to be familiar with CORS itself. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about CORS with the Configuring CORS Access for Storage course at Pluralsight.
