How to I make use of CORS

We have our webapps running in Azure WEU region and we would like to leverage the CORS within Azure. How to setup this for other Webapps to securely access the contents from the Azure Storage account. Please suggest. No MS articles please as I was unable to understand in a better way.

Probably the steps/guidelines with some benefits would help us out.

    @Mark Goblin Welcome to Microsoft Q&A Forum, Thank you for posting your query here!

    CORS is an HTTP feature that enables a web application running under one domain to access resources in another domain. Web browsers implement a security restriction known as same-origin policy that prevents a web page from calling APIs in a different domain; CORS provides a secure way to allow one domain (the origin domain) to call APIs in another domain. See the CORS specification for details on CORS.

    Learn how to access Azure Storage for a web app (not a signed-in user) running on Azure App Service by using managed identities.

    Hope this helps!
    Kindly let us know if the above helps or you need further assistance on this issue.
