Edit a screen


REST API Equivalent. You can use the /config/{app}/flows/{flow}/screens/{screen} operation and the PUT method to edit a screen.

To be honest, there’s not a lot you can do when it comes to editing a screen: you can't even change the name of a screen. In fact, there are only two screen properties that you can edit:

  • Screen Type. Screens can be either modal, in which the screen appears in a separate page directly above your current page, or embedded. With embedded screens users are redirected to a totally separate page. The vast majority of Identity Cloud screens are modal screens, with the editProfile screen being the most notable exception.

  • Display Existing Profile Data. This property should be set to no if the screen doesn't display user in a readable format (that is, someone looking over your shoulder can't read the data). If a screen does display readable data (like the editProfile screen does), then this property should be set to yes.

To edit an existing screen, complete the following procedure:

  1. On the Screens tab, click the Edit icon next to the screen you want to modify:

  2. Select the desired options under the Screen Type and Display Existing Profile Data headings and then click Save:
