    Accessibility Issue due to SSO iframe being in the tab order

    • Product: Primo
    • Product Version: Primo August 2016
    • Relevant for Installation Type: Dedicated-Direct, Direct, Local, Total Care



    • Using the Classic UI with Single Sign-On
    • Using either PDS or Primo User Authentication with SAML
    • The SSO iframe #exlIdssoLogin is included in the tab order
    • Using a keyboard or screen reader can tab into an invisible iframe
    • The only way to get out of it is to tab through everything

    Defect Status



    There are two ways to work around this issue:

    1. If using PDS, set SILENT_LOGIN_METHOD_IFRAME to FALSE in the PDS Profile
    2. Customize the View CSS with the following line:
    iframe#exlIdssoLogin { display: none !important; }
