I understand that I can add a Quickaction to a custom object to load a Lightning component from a native record page in Lightning.

But..this component is displayed in a Modal on top of the original page. I don't want that. I want to redirect to a new "page".

The best thing I could come up with was a empty "button" component which redirects on init.


<aura:component implements="force:lightningQuickActionWithoutHeader,force:hasRecordId">
    <!-- Note: Just redirects to another page -->
    <aura:handler name="init" value="{!this}" action="{!c.init}" />


    init : function(cmp, evt, helper) {
        var evt = $A.get("e.force:navigateToComponent");
            componentDef: "c:otherComponent",
            componentAttributes: {
                marketId: cmp.get("v.recordId"),
                isredirect: true

This works but is ugly as I see that the page is loaded for a second. I also want to get rid of extra button components.

    I used the same approach. Empty modal comes up, closes itself (with a little 'just a moment message') and redirects user. Its ugly but works. Aug 17, 2017 at 9:49

    I did the same workaround. It really looks ugly and I would be happy to replace it.

    Same for me, too. Using this desperate workaround. I think we need Salesforce to add this feature...

    I use the same workaround, I was able to keep the modal appearing to a minimum time by using $A.get("e.force:closeQuickAction").fire(); Aug 20, 2017 at 5:28

    There is a new answer on this question that may be helpful, though I have not tried it. salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/170291/…

This is not the Best solution but you can create a visualforce page and URL button to do this.

The visualforce page will get id from URL and then pass that id to the component.

Visualforce page will be

<apex:page showHeader="false" standardController="objectName">

    <apex:includeLightning rendered="true"/>
    <div id="lightning" />

        var recordId = "{!$CurrentPage.parameters.id}";
            function() {
                    { marketId : recordId  },
                    function(cmp) {}

Then create a Url button with Url


Then add this URL button in your page layout in Salesforce Lightning button section.
