I created a quick action and would like to fire it from a lightning component, e.g. from a click event of a button. This article creates the quick action dynamically, but I would like to reference an existing quick action I pre-defined in the setup.

Thanks

You can call a quick action but only if you are on the record page and that page has the quick action you are trying to call.

I spent forever trying to use this to find it a fail... What you can do is use your javascript controller to go to the component you built by using navigate to component.

You might have to create an overlay (modal) to use your component if you want the component to work like a modal/quick action. I did this. I felt it was way more work than it should be but the users do not know the difference.
