Content Security Policy

22 Nov 2022 / 1 minute to read

When using Syncfusion React components with a strict Content-Security-Policy (CSP) mode enabled, some browser features are disabled. Since we’re using the following browser features, they are disabled by default.

  • Syncfusion component uses base64 as a font icon and it is not allowed in strict CSP enabled site. To overcome this, it’s necessary to add the font-src data: in the meta tag.
  • For the built in themes and styles, we use the inline styles and Roboto’s external font, which is also blocked. To allow them style-src ‘self’ unsafe-inline must be included in the meta tag.
  • The new() and the eval() are blocked, which evaluates the Dynamic code evaluation while only the template is applied to the Syncfusion components. You must utilize the script-src ‘self’ unsafe-eval in the meta tag for enabling.

The following resultant meta tag is required to overcome the CSP violation at the application side while using Syncfusion components.
