JIRA connect plugin: JavaScript access parent page object

JIRA on demand plugin is loaded into the iframe and since it's loaded from domain that differs from parent JIRA domain, I can not access the DOM parent object from the plugin:

parent.document.body.scrollTop

Is there any way to access the scroll positio of the parent window? I really need this to position the dialogs launched from the plugin.

You can't access the parent window. You're explicitly sandboxed. How are you launching the dialog? Are you using AP.dialog?

I am using AUI dailog: https://docs.atlassian.com/aui/latest/docs/dialog.html

Is the AP.dialog centered inside parent page viewable area?

Thank you Danial!
