CRM Page (Hosted Control)

Aplica-se a: Unified Service Desk 2.0

Use the CRM Page hosted control type to load a URL or page from CRM. When a CRM page is loaded within a hosted control of this type, it will automatically scan the page for data from the entity, and automatically populate the replacement parameters.

This hosted control type exposes a number of predefined UII actions and events that are unique to handling of CRM windows including list manipulation actions, and a find action for displaying a quick search or advanced search page

Create a CRM Page hosted control

While creating a new hosted control, the fields in the New Hosted Control screen vary based on the type of hosted control you want to create. This section provides information about the specific fields that are unique to the CRM Page hosted control type. For detailed information about creating a hosted control, see Create or edit a hosted control.

CRM page hosted control

In the New Hosted Control screen:

  • Under Unified Service Desk area, select CRM Page from the USD Component Type drop-down list.

  • From the Allow Multiple Pages drop-down list, select Yes to automatically create a drop-down list when a second URL is called or a window navigation rule directs a page to the tab. This will allow the user to quickly search between the pages that are attached to this control. If you select No, when Unified Service Desk receives a navigate action call or a page is routed to the tab, it will replace the page that is currently displayed and update the browser history.

  • The Hosting Type drop-down list specifies how you want this control to be hosted. You can choose Internal WPF (default) or IE Process. For more information, see Select a hosting method for your controls.

  • Under the Common Properties area, select the Application is Global check box to set the hosted control as global. Global hosted controls can be displayed outside of a customer session. Controls like the agents’ dashboard, wall or search are common uses for global hosted controls. Global hosted controls do not have session-specific state so when you change sessions, these same global hosted controls remain. If the check box is not selected, the hosted control becomes session based. Session-based controls exist in the context of the customer session. If the user changes to another session, all the session pages from the previous session are hidden.

  • The Display Group field displays the panel where this hosted control will be displayed. MainPanel is the most common for this hosted control type. For information about various panels available in Unified Service Desk, see Panels, panel types, and panel layouts in Unified Service Desk.

For information about other General fields, see Create or edit a hosted control.

Predefined UII actions

These are the predefined actions for this hosted control type.

Parameter Description

LogicalName

The logical name of the entity for creating a new instance.

noteNota
The rest of the parameters should consist of name=value pairs. These are the additional pre-populated values in the form for creating a new record for the specified entity. For more information about using this action, see step 4 in Walkthrough 7: Configure agent scripting in your agent application.

Opens an existing instance of the entity specified and identified by the ID, and treats the page as a popup from the specified hosted control. The window navigation rules are evaluated to determine the location where the popup should be displayed.

 

Parameter Description

id

The ID of the entity record to open.

Parameter Description

url

Routes a popup from this hosted control using this URL as if it were a popup requested from the displayed control.

frame

The frame from which this popup originated.

Close

This action is used to close the hosted control. Unlike the CloseActive action, if this tab (hosted control) is displaying more than one page, it will close all the pages displayed in the tab in your agent application.

Fires a user-defined event from this hosted control.

 

Parameter Description

name

Name of the user-defined event.

All subsequent name=value pairs become the parameters to the event. For more information about creating a user-defined event, see Create a user-defined event.

This action is used to move hosted controls between panels at runtime.

 

Parameter Description

app

Name of the hosted control to be moved.

panel

Target panel for the hosted control.

SetSize

This action explicitly sets the width and height of the hosted control. This is particularly useful when using "auto" in your panel layouts.

 

Parameter Description

width

The width of the hosted control.

height

The height of the hosted control.

Navigate to the quick find list view of the specified entity.

 

Parameter Description
 

The data parameter should specify the entity logical name of the quick find list view to display. There are some special case values:

  • Use case or incident to display the quick find list view for cases.

  • Use advfind to display the advanced find view.

  • Use activities or activity to display the quick find list view for activities.

This action is used to navigate to a CRM url.

 

Parameter Description

url

The URL to navigate to. This is a mandatory parameter.

Noscan

If this parameter is supplied and True, the data parameters will not be captured from the page.

Hideribbon

If this parameter is supplied and True, the inner frame will be navigated instead, thus avoiding loading the ribbon.

Hidenav

If this parameter is supplied and True, the navigation panel on the left in CRM, will be collapsed after the page is loaded.

Frame

When frames exist on the page, this parameter would specify the name of the frame to navigate, rather than navigating the main window.

postdata

Data that is sent to the server as part of an HTTPPOST transaction. A POST transaction is typically used to send data gathered by an HTML page. In Unified Service Desk, this data can be received from any event triggered using "http://event/?". Example: [[postdata]+]

Alternatively, the data can be passed as an encoded string with its header type in the intended format.

header

A string value that contains additional HTTP headers to send to the server. When the postdata parameter is used in the Navigate action, you should also specify an appropriate value for the header parameter. Example: Content-Type:application/x-www-form-urlencoded

If a Unified Service Desk POST event triggers the Navigate action, the default value of this parameter should be header=[[header]+]

This action collapses or expands the ribbon. If you hide the ribbon in the Navigate action, it will not be displayed and this action does not work. This action will work only when the ribbon was initially loaded.

This action collapses or expands the navigation pane on the left panel of the CRM window. The navigation must contain a navigation panel for this action to work.

CloseActive

This action is used to close the active window within this hosted control. If the active window is the only window displayed in the hosted control, the hosted control itself will be closed.
