The advantage of Atlas is its ability to render a satellite application’s shell, or all common components that every satellite application must have. A call to launch will begin the process of rendering a shell. This process can take some time thus the call returns a promise that is resolved when the shell is finished rendering.

It is best practice to wait until the shell is rendered and the currently impersonated account is returned before displaying any account specific information in a satellite application.

var promise = atlas.launch({
  mainNavId: "Assgined by Platform",
  localLogout: "/auth/logout"
promise.done( function(data) {
  // Fetch Satellite Application data for impersonated account
  // Listen for changes to the impersonated account and refresh the data

If not present in the DOM launch will add the account-switcher, brand-bar, and main-nav nodes for you. However, to prevent flashing when the nodes are added it is best practice to include them in the satellite application markup.

Configuration Parameters

Name Type Required Description
mainNavId string | observable string no The id of the menu to select in the main-nav. This is assigned to a satellite application by the platform team when the menu item is added.
localLogout string | observable string | function no If the value is a string or an observable string an AJAX GET call will be executed prior to redirecting the user to SSO logout. If the value is a function the function will be called and if a promise is returned execution will halt until the promise is resolved and then the user will be redirect to the SSO logout. This allows a satellite application to clean up it’s dedicated session before performing SSO logout.
