Access-Control-Expose-Headers

The Access-Control-Expose-Headers response header indicates which headers can be exposed as part of the response by listing their names.

By default, only the 6 simple response headers are exposed:

If you want clients to be able to access other headers, you have to list them using the Access-Control-Expose-Headers header.

Syntax

Access-Control-Expose-Headers: <header-name>, <header-name>, ...

Directives

<header-name>
A list of exposed headers consisting of zero or more header names other than the simple response headers that the resource might use and can be exposed.

Examples

To expose a non-simple response header, you can specify:

Access-Control-Expose-Headers: Content-Length

To additionally expose a custom header, like X-Kuma-Revision, you can specify multiple headers separated by a comma:

Access-Control-Expose-Headers: Content-Length, X-Kuma-Revision
