launchpad url.exit opening in frame?

5 days ago

I set my url.exit parameter in to a url external to our BOBJ server. When I click "Log off" link from LaunchPad the system tried to open the url in the parameter. The problem is that I get the message :"This content cannot be displayed in a frame". How do I prevent LaunchPad from trying to open the exit url in a frame?

We are running version 4.2 sp4 non fiori launchpad web interface

As already mentioned by Denis, this happens due to certain settings to prevent clickjacking attack.

So, as a workaround, you can try the below steps:

1. Create a folder ExitURL inside <Tomcat Installation Dir>\webapps folder.

2. Inside the folder above, create an html file exiturl.htm with content as below:

<title> Please wait .. </title>
top.location = "";
<body><p>Please wait...</p></body>

3. Change the URL in the script above as required.

4. Open the file <Tomcat Installation Dir>\webapps\BOE\WEB-INF\config\custom\ and modify the exit url as:


5. Restart Tomcat. It may take some time to become fully up and running.

6. Login to BI Launchpad and log out to test the behavior.

This is a security measure to prevent clickjacking.

why would your exist URL point to external server ?
