Install rack-cors gem

Add to Gemfile:

gem 'rack-cors'


./bin/bundle install

Configure CORS policy

Edit config/initializers/cors.rb:

# frozen_string_literal: true

# Be sure to restart your server when you modify this file.

# Avoid CORS issues when API is called from the frontend app.
# Handle Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) in order to accept cross-origin AJAX requests.

Rails.application.config.middleware.insert_before 0, Rack::Cors do
  allow do
    origins Rails.application.config.frontend_url

    resource '*',
             headers: :any,
             methods: %i[get post put patch delete options head]

Edit config/environments/development.rb and config/environments/test.rb to allow access from all hosts when running in the development and test environments:

Rails.application.configure do
  # other config
  config.frontend_url = '*'

Edit config/environments/production.rb to restrict access to specific host in the production environment:

Rails.application.configure do
  # other config
  config.frontend_url = ENV.fetch('FRONTEND_URL')

You’ll want to set the FRONTEND_URL as an environment variable in your production server.

Restart your dev server to activate the new CORS policy.
