Enabling CORS in Cloud Functions for Firebase

I’m currently learning how to use new Cloud Functions for Firebase and the problem I’m having is that I can’t access the function I wrote through an AJAX request. I get the “No ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin'” error. Here’s an example of the function I wrote:

exports.test = functions.https.onRequest((request, response) => {
  response.status(500).send({test: 'Testing functions'});
})

The function sits in this url:
https://us-central1-fba-shipper-140ae.cloudfunctions.net/test

Firebase docs suggests to add CORS middleware inside the function, I’ve tried it but it’s not working for me: https://firebase.google.com/docs/functions/http-events

This is how I did it:

var cors = require('cors');    

exports.test = functions.https.onRequest((request, response) => {
   cors(request, response, () => {
     response.status(500).send({test: 'Testing functions'});
   })
})

What am I doing wrong? I would appreciate any help with this.

UPDATE:

Doug Stevenson‘s answer helped. Adding ({origin: true}) fixed the issue, I also had to change response.status(500) to response.status(200) which I completely missed at first.
