Hello all, unsure if anyone at all tried this, but what were are try to do is to display specific page from Workday to an iframe widget in our Docebo instance. Normally using the iframe widget works but this particular page just won’t load. 

We’ve already tried enabling iframe support within Workday - still nothing. 

It’s as if it’s stuck on a loop and just gives up after a while (see below)

 

 

Does anyone else encounter a similar issue? 

Thanks in advance!

Hi Keith,

Looks like Workday is preventing the connection. This often happens when trying to use an iframe to embed another platform instead of a ordinary webpage as platforms most often have some HTTP headers to protect pages and documents inside. One of which is that the frame ancestors must be from the same domain as the original content. As it is Workday that is blocking access I would reach out to their support. 

From Nate Madel: 

Agree with Richard. There are also some online tools to check the iframe policy of a given URL - https://www.tinywebgallery.com/blog/advanced-iframe/free-iframe-checker

Generally the one that prevents iframe is a “SAMEORIGIN” policy.

Something you may have already considered is that if you use SSO to login to workday, it won’t be able to identify who you, or the user is to log in securely when using iFrame or embed of other sorts. I could be wrong about that, but something to consider.
