How to Resolve "Host does not match origin" Error When Coupling Clusters
30 April 2021 03:07 PM


When configuring a server to add a foreign cluster you may encounter the following error:

Host does not match origin or inferred origin, or is otherwise untrusted.

This error will typically occur when using MarkLogic Server versions prior to 10.0-6, in combination with Chrome versions newer than 84.x.

Our recommendation to resolve this issue is to upgrade to MarkLogic Server 10.0-6 or newer. If that is not an option, then using a different browser, such as Mozilla Firefox, or downgrading to Chrome version 84.x may also resolve the error.

Changes to Chrome

Starting in version 85.x of Chrome, there was a change made to the default Referrer-Policy, which is what causes the error. The old default was no-referrer-when-downgrade, and the new value is strict-origin-when-cross-origin. When no policy is set, the browser's default setting is used. Websites are able to set their own policy, but it is common practice for websites to defer to the browser's default setting.
