Navigate Users Directly to an App

Develop Lightning web components and Aura components that navigate users to a specific page in an app.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience in all editions. This change doesn’t apply to Lightning Out, Lightning communities, or the Salesforce mobile app.

How: Now you can create components that link directly to your app and to a specific page in your app.

Use the lightning-navigation Lightning web component or the lightning:navigation Aura component with the new standard__app page reference type.
  • To navigate users to an app, pass either the appId or appDeveloperName URL parameters to the appTarget.
  • To navigate users to a specific page in an app, include the pageRef attribute.
