frontdoor access to custom tabs?


Is there a way to access a custom tab from frontdoor.jsp? I noticed that each custom tab I create gets it own GUID. But I'm not sure on how to get there from frontdoor. In addition, can I perform a query through the API to get the custom tab GUID rather than statically referring to it?

I'm not sure i understand the first question, but for the second one, see the describeTabs API call.
Hi Simon,

Thanks for your reply. What I'm looking for in the first part of the question is to access a custom tab from a frontdoor URL in the same way I can access a contact, account, or general tab -- probably along the lines of using the retURL= parameter.

the describeTabs call will give you an URL to the tab that you should be able to pass on the retURL to frontdoor.
