Error description

  • When the Cognos 11 portal is embedded in an iFrame, the "Create
    Report View" button does not work. This appears to be because
    the application is trying to invoke a Javascript function in the
    following way: window.parent.require
    
    When accessing the Cognos application directly, this works
    without issue. This is because window.parent does not actually
    refer to a parent window (as none exists). Instead, it refers to
    the current window; i.e. the Cognos application window; and
    require is available in the Cognos application window.
    
    N.B. window.parent referring to window if no parent exists is
    standard behaviour and is nothing to do with Cognos.
    
    The problem occurs whenever the Cognos application is being
    accessed inside of an iFrame. In this scenario, window.parent
    actually refers to the iFrame window object, which does not have
    require available.
