JIRA connect plugin: JavaScript access parent page object

Volodymyr Krupach Community Champion May 17, 2014

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!
