I am trying to utilise the lightning:tabClosed event within my LEX component on a Case. I want to be able to get the record ID for the tab that was closed, as I need to do some processing using that information.

What I am finding is that when the lightning:tabClosed event fires, I am unable to use getTabURL() and getTabInfo() as I get the following errors (in no particular order):

Uncaught (in promise) Error: getTabURL() - Failed to get URL for tabId ctab1 Uncaught (in promise) Error: getTabInfo() - Failed to get URL for tabId ctab0

null "Error: getTabInfo() - Failed to get tabInfo for tabId ctab0" null "Error: getTabURL() - Failed to get tabInfo for tabId ctab1"

Following is an example of my code:

    var closedTabId = event.getParam('tabId');
    console.log("%% 1 - Tab Closed Id = " + closedTabId);

    var workspaceAPI = component.find("workspace");

        tabId: closedTabId
    }).then(function(response) {

It almost seems like because the tab closes as part of this event, we lose access to that information.

I look forward to seeing your responses.
