I have a visualforce page inside my lightning Service console that displays related records of a case. On clicking on a record, I would like to open the detail in a new tab/subtab. For now, it opens in a separate window which is not in a lightning view. This is my vf page:

<apex:page showHeader="false" sidebar="false" standardController="Case" extensions="AssetRelatedListCtrl">
<apex:includeScript value="/support/console/40.0/integration.js"/>
        <apex:selectList size="1" value="{!recordType}" style="width:130px;">
            <apex:selectOptions value="{!TypeOptions}"/>
            <apex:actionSupport id="recType" event="onchange" action="{!gatherRelatedAssets}" rerender="tablePanel"/>
        <apex:pageBlockTable value="{!relatedAssets}" var="asset" id="tablePanel">
            <apex:column headerValue="Id">
            <A HREF="#" onClick="openAssetSubtab('{!asset.Id}', '{!asset.Name}');return false">{!asset.Name}</A>
            <apex:column headerValue="Model" value="{!asset.Model__c}"/>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var recordId = '{!caseId}';
    var assetId;
    var assetName;

    function openAssetSubtab(arg1, arg2) {
        assetId = arg1;
        assetName = arg2;
        if (sforce.console.isInConsole()) {
            //here, since im only using this page in the classic console and lightning console, I want to open the link in one or the other!

    function OpenInNewTabWinBrowser(url) {
        var win = window.open(url, '_blank');

    var openSubtab = function openSubtab(result) {
        var primaryTabId = result.id;
        sforce.console.openSubtab(primaryTabId , '/'+assetId, true, 
            assetName, null, openSuccess, 'salesforceSubtab');

    var openSuccess = function openSuccess(result) {
        if (result.success == true) {
            console.log('subtab successfully opened');
        } else {
            console.log('subtab cannot be opened');

You can use sforce.one.navigateToSObject('{!asset.Id}') which will open a record in new lightning console tab.

    hi, Any Idea how can I open a New Tab in Service console for a given apex page in Lightning just like openPrimaryTab();

The existing sforce.console methods would work too. You just need to change the version of your Integration.js file to 42.0
