We are currently using the force:canvasApp lightning component to embed an external site securely into Salesforce.

The Spring '19 release is introducing Lightning Web Components as the future of Lightning development for Salesforce. If we wanted to convert our existing force:canvasApp component into the new LWC Model, what are my options? Is there a different way altogether to embed external sites securely into Salesforce with the new LWC Model?


Aura Components are not going to be deprecated any time soon . I raised this question on the twitter to the PM for canvas and LWC and here is the response from him , please check screenshot below

Hence for few more releases I think you will have to use the force:canvasapp and the aura bundle .

    +1 Exactly what I suspected, but I didn't comment because I didn't know enough about it. I actually even estimated 2 releases, though of course, I can't prove it, lol. – sfdcfox Jan 14 at 10:27
  • It's been two releases :-P Anyway to check for an update on this? – Brian Miller Nov 7 at 22:35
