    Jive 7 profile page - retrieving parent frame URL from add-on

      Reposting Butch Marshall's question here: Jive 7 profile page - retrieving parent frame URL from add-on

       

       

      In the new Jive 7 launch there is now an ability to launch your own add-ons under the Profile pages "More" tab.  The add-on pages seem to run in a different sub-domain than the parent frame. Add-on iframes seem to live in app-jiveinstancename.jiveon.com whereas Jive itself lives in jiveinstancename.jiveon.com.

       

      We redirect people there from other pages to this page and pass data in the location hash to determine what to display.


      Our app needs the ability to read the parent url - unfortunately the different sub-domain prevents access.


      Mark Weitzel mentioned it may be possible to retrieve the url using the javascript OSAPI. So, how would an iFramed OpenSocial app determine its parent URL?


      Could anyone point me in the right direction?


      Thanks!
