Has anyone had problem with a WebFOCUS report being embedded in a 3rd party application (Salesforce)? I have several WebFOCUS reports that run from a Salesforce button, that open a new window when calling a WebFOCUS report. I haven’t had any problems with this.

I have one report that is embedded inside a Salesforce frame. This has been running fine for 2 months. It just stopped working when using Chrome, but it does work when using EDGE.

I know having the latest Chrome has caused the problem. I'm just wondering if someone has the same problem and if they know what may have changed in Chrome to cause it.

I've seen weird things happen with the new version of Chrome with WebFOCUS's portals. But seems to work OK in incognito mode.

Hoping they fix the issues with chrome.

We get a message that says, "Chrome is being controlled by automated test software”. Really annoying and the published fix no longer works. Mark Derwin got it during his presentation last Friday.

I've seen it from running stuff from App Studio 8207. Seems its using Selenium to run the reports

David, to me as a developer and user getting any unnecessary message that hangs on the screen for 4-5 second is a problem.

It is not an unnecessary message. Chrome shows this due to selenium and it cannot be suppressed. The only alternative is to use a different browser from AppStudio like IE or FireFox.
