Unable to Select Elements in Cross Domain iFrames

Last Updated November 12, 2023


If your site is utilizing cross domain iFrames, you may find that you are unable to capture an element within the iFrames. 

This is because the system does not yet have the additional configuration needed to capture on cross domain iFrames. 

Possible error you may encounter prompting you to contact support for assistance


When WalkMe detects the scenario above, you'll be presented with the option to optimize your system in real time, allowing you to continue building right away.

Clicking Confirm will adjust the configuration, automatically save your current progress up to this point, and refresh the Editor.

Once you confirm, you will be able to select the element.


This option is currently only available for systems created after November 12, 2023.

Future support is planned for additional systems.
