I have to convert the following button to salesforce console button to open as sub-tab.

parent.frames.location.replace ('a0o/e?CF00Nr0000000VUoP={!URLENCODE(Application__c.Name)}&CF00Nr0000000VUoP_lkid={!Application__c.Id}&saveURL=%2F{!Application__c.Id}&retURL=%2F{!Application__c.Id}')

You can use srcUp method


Update you can try standard method too.

if(typeof(srcUp) == 'function') //Checks that it is in console
var openSubtab = function(result){ 
sforce.console.openSubtab(result.id,'a0o/e?CF00Nr0000000VUoP={!URLENCODE(Application__c.Name)}&CF00Nr0000000VUoP_lkid={!Application__c.Id}&saveURL=%2F{!Application__c.Id}&retURL=%2F{!Application__c.Id}', true, 'Subtab Name', null); 


This will open as sub tab in service cloud and will work in normal window as well.

  • Added the srcUp but getting an Privilege error. "You do not have the level of access necessary to perform the operation you requested. Please contact the owner of the record or your administrator if access is necessary. For more information, see Insufficient Privileges Errors." May 30, 2016 at 5:18

  • No luck still the same error. I tried both list button and detail button for onlick javascript May 30, 2016 at 6:47
  • You can also use custom console component!

@SalesforceLearner, Since it's a edit page(noticed by your /e... in the url) and you have commented in @TusharSharma's answer as Insufficient Privileges Errors.I would make sure to check the User's Profile has 'Create'(must)/Edit permission on the specified key prefixes(a0o - object ), then for sure srcUp mentioned below will work in console.

    @MohithShrivastava His post is a legit answer. He's responding to the OP's comments under Tushar's answer to the question. This should not be deleted. - From Review

    @MohithShrivastava I always try to look at the entire post on these when they reference something else before voting (ditto for close votes that have answers).
