Predefined UII actions

FireEvent

Fires a user-defined event from this hosted control.

Parameter Description
name Name of the user-defined event.

All subsequent name=value pairs become the parameters to the event. For more information about creating a user-defined event, see Create a user-defined event.

GoBack

This action is equivalent to clicking the back button on the browser instance.

GoForward

This action is equivalent to clicking the forward button on the browser instance.

GoHome

This action goes to the initial URL specified for this browser instance.

LoadArea

This action loads a specific area from the model-driven apps. This is equivalent to selecting an area in the navigation pane (such as Sales, Service, and Marketing). The only parameter is the name of the area to click. For example: areaService.

Parameter Description
frame The name of the frame to affect. If no name is specified, it will automatically target the first frame found on the page.

MoveToPanel

This action is used to move hosted controls between panels at runtime.

Parameter Description
app Name of the hosted control to be moved.
panel Target panel for the hosted control.

This action is used to navigate to the model-driven apps url.

Parameter Description
url The URL to navigate to. This is a mandatory parameter.
Noscan If this parameter is supplied and True, the data parameters will not be captured from the page.
HideCommandBar If this parameter is supplied and True, the inner frame will be displayed without loading the model-driven apps command bar.
HideNavigationBar If this parameter is supplied and True, the form will be displayed without loading the model-driven apps navigation bar.
Frame When frames exist on the page, this parameter would specify the name of the frame to navigate, rather than navigating the main window.
postdata Data that is sent to the server as part of an HTTPPOST transaction. A POST transaction is typically used to send data gathered by an HTML page. In Unified Service Desk, this data can be received from any event triggered using "https://event/?". Example: [[postdata]+]

Alternatively, the data can be passed as an encoded string with its header type in the intended format.
header A string value that contains additional HTTP headers to send to the server. When the postdata parameter is used in the Navigate action, you should also specify an appropriate value for the header parameter. Example: Content-Type:application/x-www-form-urlencoded

If a Unified Service DeskPOST event triggers the Navigate action, the default value of this parameter should be header=[[header]+]

Note

The rest of the parameters should consist of name=value pairs. These are the additional pre-populated values in the form for creating a new record for the specified entity.
