My requirement is to embed a report into a Custom visualforce page. For this I am using apex:iframe with 'src' parameter value set as relative url to the Report. However it does not give any error at compile time but at runtime it only displays a blank page. When I used firebug to inspect it shows "Refused to display 'https://....' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'SAMEORIGIN'."

Does anybody know solution for this problem? Or it will be really helpful if anybody provides alternate way to embed reports into visualforce page.

VisualForce page is:

<apex:page sidebar="false">
    <apex:iframe src="/00OW0000000FngF" scrolling="true"/>

Thanks, KP

  • Can you post your code? The VF page and the report should have the same origin so you shouldn't be getting that error. – BarCotter Nov 5 '14 at 10:27
  • @BarCotter My visualforce page has following content: <apex:page> <apex:iframe src='/reportId' scrolling='true'> </apex:iframe </apex:page> – user12873 Nov 5 '14 at 11:58
  • That is not a valid page. The iframe tag is not properly closed and you are hard coding the report URL to '/reportId' rather than '/' + {!reportId} (assuming you have a variable called reportId in the controller) – BarCotter Nov 5 '14 at 12:02
  • Thanks BarCotter! Updated Code is :- <apex:page sidebar="false"> <apex:iframe src="/00OW0000000FngF" scrolling="true"/> </apex:page> – user12873 Nov 5 '14 at 12:07
  • I have added that code to your question – BarCotter Nov 5 '14 at 12:10

SalesForce stopped supporting the displaying of reports in iFrames in Spring '14. They also introduced the Reporting API in this release. Try using the analytics:reportChart tag to display your report. Example:

<analytics:reportChart reportId="00OZ0000000I3rc"/>
  • Here is a code example on displaying reports – BarCotter Nov 5 '14 at 12:31
