    var objService = {};
    var objData = {};

    objData.id = id;
    objService.data = objData;
    var params = objService;


                            url: myUrl,
                            type: 'GET',
                            dataType: 'json',
                            contentType: 'application/json; charset=utf-8',
                            data: params.data,

  • Did you ever find a solution to this?  I am having the same problem and believe it is some kind of security feature in MS Word.  I am getting an "Access Denied" error when I try to use it.  Can't figure out how to tell Word that the URL is safe to use.

  • I found the answer!

    The problem is related to scripting across different Domains.  I found 2 solutions.

    1.  Use https when making the ajax call.

    2.  Disable SSL requirement in the Projects Properties by setting SSL Enabled to False.  (see attached pic)
