We have canvas app which loads list of items. (Here all oauth is established). From this user is able to click on individual link to open the item details from there.

Now I am looking for direct way to point to item from one of the layout page example Contact layout page. What would be best way to achieved this?

Create anothe canvas app looks overkill. Is there better alternative?

    Are you trying to create a Mashup or just a link from Contact detail page to the Canvas App? – crmprogdev May 18 '18 at 13:21

    I think what you are trying to achieve is having a button on detail page of Contact record, on click of that button you want to open the canvas. Is this what you are looking for? – Mr.Frodo May 18 '18 at 14:19

I am not sure if you are aware of Canvas events(Publish and Subscribe). This is a wonderful way of passing information between salesforce and external app.

I wrote this answer a while back, It might be helpful for you.
