In this article you will learn:
1. What is an embedded app?
Embedded applications are similar to widgets to a page. You can make external application contents available on a desired webpage. For example, we often see Google Maps on a restaurant’s webpage. In this case, Google Maps is the embedded app, and it’s providing further convenience to users.
2. How can I make Allex available on a webpage?
You just need to follow the simple steps below.
Decide a webpage where you want to add Allex contents
Share the webpage URL with Allex team for configuration (This is required due to some security reasons, e.g., project data should not be available on a strange page)
After the configuration, you can add the iFrame script to the webpage
Allex iFrame Script
sandbox=“allow-forms allow-modals allow-orientation-lock allow-pointer-lock allow-popups allow-popups-to-escape-sandbox allow-presentation allow-same-origin allow-scripts allow-top-navigation-by-user-activation”
