Cross-domain Policy File¶
A cross-domain policy file allows web pages hosted elsewhere to use client side technologies such as Flash, Java and Silverlight to interact with the Swift API.
See http://www.adobe.com/devnet/articles/crossdomain_policy_file_spec.html for a description of the purpose and structure of the cross-domain policy file. The cross-domain policy file is installed in the root of a web server (i.e., the path is /crossdomain.xml).
The crossdomain middleware responds to a path of /crossdomain.xml with an XML document such as:
<?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.adobe.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd" > <cross-domain-policy> <allow-access-from domain="*" secure="false" /> </cross-domain-policy>
You should use a policy appropriate to your site. The examples and the default policy are provided to indicate how to syntactically construct a cross domain policy file – they are not recommendations.
To enable this middleware, add it to the pipeline in your proxy-server.conf file. It should be added before any authentication (e.g., tempauth or keystone) middleware. In this example ellipsis (...) indicate other middleware you may have chosen to use:
[pipeline:main] pipeline = ... crossdomain ... authtoken ... proxy-server
And add a filter section, such as:
[filter:crossdomain] use = egg:swift#crossdomain cross_domain_policy = <allow-access-from domain="*.example.com" /> <allow-access-from domain="www.example.com" secure="false" />
For continuation lines, put some whitespace before the continuation text. Ensure you put a completely blank line to terminate the cross_domain_policy value.
The cross_domain_policy name/value is optional. If omitted, the policy defaults as if you had specified:
cross_domain_policy = <allow-access-from domain="*" secure="false" />
