A recently asked question that I've decided to answer here in the community so all can benefit since I did not see it asked here previously.
How do you enable cross origin resource sharing for Sugar 7 REST API?
Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) allows clients to selectively by-pass the Same-origin policy implemented by web browsers.  The Same-origin policy prevents web pages from accessing data from a different origin than the current one for security reasons.  In particular, this prevents any arbitrary JavaScript web app from calling the Sugar 7 REST API directly using AJAX.  CORS is the accepted standard for allowing cross origin requests that would otherwise be prevented.
