I have been using POSTMAN for sometime now for sending
HTTP requests like GET, POST, PUT for RESTful Webservices. Recently came across a situation, when sending a request to my REST API through browser, I got a message that
No Access Control Allow Origin Header is present on the Requested resource.
The solution was ofcourse to add such an header to the API. However strangely, When I sent the the same request through POSTMAN I was able to get back the response.
So I want to know how is sending a request through POSTMAN different from sending a request through browser.
I went through this question: CORS with POSTMAN, but it really doesn't provide an answer in detail.
