Most of this sounds feasible.
- This works fine. My issue with the REST API is that you will need to use a system user for pushing activities as the REST API does not support impersonation at this point. For pushing activities you might also want to take a look at the Jive apps gateway
- You can easily link/navigate from an embedded view to a canvas view. The regular navigation between views (navigateto) works fine here.
- Yes, you can embed iFrames in a Jive app
- Action links work fine for making calls to your backend. Of course you do need to implement signed request validation for your system.
Your scenarios are good use cases for the use of tiles.
This can currently not be done through the Jive apps framework. It is a common request, so I hope Jive will add this eventually. This would require the development of a plugin. The out of the box option (opensearch) in Jive is very limited in regards to support and functionality, so I wouldn't spend to much time with it.
Thanks a bunch, Nils. This is very helpful.
