Set up security settings for the Workflow apps portal

# Embedding

You can embed portal pages into your organization's internal portals, Salesforce, and more.

Toggle Enable iframe embedding to allow embedding your portal pages in an iframe. From here, you can enable embedding your portal pages in any iframe, or only within domains you specify.

If you plan to limit embedding your portal pages only to specific domains, you can specify one or more URLs in the Specify frame ancestors field. These URLs are used in the Content-Security-Policy HTTP header to allow rendering of Workflow apps in an iframe.

Alternatively, leave this field blank to allow embedding pages in any iframe.

# Customize portal for embedding

When you embed portal pages within external sites, you can customize the portal's appearance by hiding the top banner and customizing the padding on all sides by appending specific query parameters to your portal URL.

These parameters are URL-encoded JSON in the following format:


{"showHeader": false, "layoutPadding": "0 10px 10px 0"}

  • showHeader

  • Boolean (true/false) value. Set to false to hide the top header of the portal.

  • layoutPadding

  • Determine the padding of the portal on all sides. In the preceding example, the top padding is 0, the right is 10px, the bottom is 10px, and the left is 0.

The following demonstrates how to generate the parameter value in your browser console:

encodeURIComponent(JSON.stringify({"showHeader": false, "layoutPadding": "0 10px 10px 0"})) 

Which results in the following parameter. Append this to your portal URL:


Altogether, it looks something like this:

<iframe src="https://mycompany.workato.app/app-name/?embedding_params=%7B%22showHeader%22%3Afalse%2C%22layoutPadding%22%3A%220%200%200%200%22%7D"></iframe>
