Hi Devs,

We are on APEX 20.2. When opening a public page modal dialog in a different application (117), we get the below error:

Application 117 Dialog page 2 cannot be rendered successfully. Ensure the page template in use on page 2 is of template type "Dialog page", with appropriate JavaScript dialog initialization, dialog closure and dialog cancel code defined.

Contact your application administrator.

This modal dialog is called from application 114. Both have different Session Cookies.

In application 114, I have a button which calls the modal dialog (Redirect to a page in different application) in 117 which is public (Authentication = Page is Public).

However, I tested the same in APEX 21.1 ( modal dialog opens without issue.

Is this a known issue in APEX 20.2 and is fixed in 21.1?

If yes, any workaround to open public modal dialog pages from different applications.

    I will comment that I received the same error message from APEX 21.1 - (although I was sharing session cookies). But when I switched from friendly URLs to traditional URLs (Legacy URLs? Hostile URLs?) it worked. Note - app is still set for friendly URLs, I just generated the old kind and that worked.

    This is triggered from a button located in a Card report.
