Embedding Kintone Screen in Other Web Sites

Article Number:02013

This page describes the steps to configure settings for embedding Kintone content in other websites and systems.

Embedding Contents

Embedding contents means that you use iframe tag or frame tag to render Kintone contents in other Web site or system.
You need to log in to Kintone to display the embedded app.

Note that if you have restricted access to Kintone by means of IP address restrictions, that restriction will be applied.

How to use

You can embed an inventory management app created in Kintone into your business system, so that team members can check inventory figures in the business system.

Security Risk

Due to security risks, "Embedding into External Sites" is not allowed by default.
This is because to address the following two specific security risks:

  • Clickjacking
  • Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF)

Configuration Steps

  1. Click the gear-shaped menu button in the header.

  2. Click Users & System Administration.

  3. Click Misc Settings. Screenshot: "Misc Settings" is highlighted

  4. In the "Embedding into External Sites" section, select "Allow embedding Kintone contents into external sites, for example by using iframe".

  5. Click Save.

When the Change Made to the Setting Is Applied

The new setting is applied when users log in again.
