I have a link on my lightning component that opens a record in a new tab.

I need to modify this link so that the record opens in a primary tab in the lightning service console. Please advice how can I achieve this?


Are you using navigateToURL to open your record? if yes,try using relative url when redirecting to record,for example:

var urlEvent = $A.get("e.force:navigateToURL");
            "url": '/'+recordId,
            "target": "_top"



Using "target": "_top" might help. Please let me know if it works.

  • Thanks for your response. I applied this solution but it opens a subtab instead of a primary tab. Please advice how can I open the record in a primary tab. – user51241 Jul 6 '18 at 12:53
  • Have you tried removing target attribute and just using the relative url instead? – Isha Arora Jul 9 '18 at 6:27
