Use AJAX containers to render and control multiple harnesses in a single browser
window and eliminate the use of
iframe tags in your markup. To use the full
potential of AJAX containers, learn about the supported actions and limitations of this
AJAX containers support the following work-related actions:
- Create new work
- Open assignment
- Open work item
- Open work by handle
- Display harness: new document
- Open section
For more information about actions, see Available UI actions.
AJAX containers do not support the following actions:
- Display harness: replace current
- Open wizard
- Open landing
- Open work by URL
- Get next work
- Open rule by class and name
- Open rule by keys
- Refresh from outside the AJAX container
AJAX containers have the following use-case limitations:
- AJAX containers support UI in template mode only.
- You cannot use many AJAX containers of the same kind in the same document. For example, the same document cannot include two primary AJAX containers.
- AJAX containers cannot be nested.
- Container components, such as modal dialog boxes and overlays, do not support AJAX containers. For example, you cannot use AJAX containers in a flow-action section that is displayed in a modal dialog box.
- When an AJAX container is opened as a modal (tertiary AJAX container), the action set that includes triggering an openwork action by clicking a link must be disabled in that container. If the action set remains active, a click on the action set link triggers background operations while the AJAX container remains open, causing potential issues.
