Last updated on MAY 01, 2023

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.56 to 8.57 [Release 8.4]
PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.58 to 8.58 [Release 8.4]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


PT 8.56 and PT8.57 

When users do a punch out process with an external non peoplesoft site, after the puchout returns back to peoplesoft they get an error message

This content can't be shown in a frame.
There is supposed to be some content here, but the publisher doesn't allow it to be displayed in a frame. This is to help protect the security of any information you might enter into this site.


In the F12 Developer tools, logging on the network tab shows:

X-Frame-Options: DENY

This is shown on the response headers when it attempts to return to PeopleSoft.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Login and navigate to external page
2. Perform a punch out operation with an external vendor site.
3. When control returns back to peoplesoft page see the error:

"This content can't be shown in a frame"
