Enable CSP for an Organization

Control hostname restrictions for individual GoodData features using Content Security Policy (CSP). The logic behind CSP is similar to CORS, but the main difference is that CORS is absolutely critical from a security point of view. CORS cannot be used to loosen domain restrictions for individual features such as linking, redirecting or iframe embedding. With CSP you can optionally disable the domain restrictions for individual GoodData features, and for example, make your dashboard be embeddable under any domain.

GoodData allows these CSP directives. Please note that your combined CSP header should not exceed 3000 characters.

CSP settings can be managed from GoodData home page under Developer settings, or via the API endpoint api/v1/entities/cspDirectives. Note that you need to have the Organization.MANAGE permission to change the CSP configuration.

Set CSP Directives

UI
API
  1. On the GoodData home page, select Settings.

  2. Next to Content security policy (CSP) click Manage.

    manage csp

    The CSP management dialog opens:

    manage csp dialog

  3. Click on allowed directives to edit them, or click + Add to create new ones.

Set a new CSP directive by making the following API call:

curl -X POST -H "Authorization: Bearer <token>" \
    -H "Content-type: application/vnd.gooddata.api+json" $HOST_URL/api/v1/entities/cspDirectives \
    -d @data.json

where data.json contains the CSP directive. For example, to extend the CSP directive script-src with the new value https://*.exampledomain.org, which allows content from the exampledomain.org domain and all its subdomains, ensure data.json contains:

{
    "data": {
        "id": "script-src",
        "type": "cspDirective",
        "attributes": {
            "sources": [
                "https://*.exampledomain.org"
            ]
        }
    }
}

The API response should contain the CSP directive you have just set:

{
    "data": [
        {
            "attributes": {
                "sources": [
                    "https://*.exampledomain.org"
                ]
            },
            "id": "script-src",
            "links": {
                "self": "$HOST_URL/api/v1/entities/cspDirectives/script-src"
            },
            "type": "cspDirective"
        }
    ],
    "links": {
        "self": "$HOST_URL/api/v1/entities/cspDirectives?page=0&size=20",
        "next": "$HOST_URL/api/v1/entities/cspDirectives?page=1&size=20"
    }
}

If you just want to review your current CSP configuration, make the following API call:
