Cross-domain Policy File In Application Archive (Doc ID 1379210.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 16, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


A cross-domain policy file is a XML document that grants a web client, such as Adobe Flash Player, permission to handle data across multiple domains. When a client hosts a content from a particular source domain and that content makes requests directed towards a domain other than its own, the remote domain would need to host a cross-domain policy file that would grant access to the source domain allowing the client to continue with the transaction. Policy files grant read access to data as well as permit a client to include custom headers in cross-domain requests.

This document will help in understanding the end user on where to place the cross-domain.xml file in the application so that it can be deployed in Weblogic Server and can be made accessible.
