I have a webmap SDK application that works fine when accessed by computer. The map that is generated is embedded in a frame. I can access the SDK map either directly (via gwmpub.aspx) or by displaying the page where i've embedded the map in an IFRAME> I am using Open Street Maps and a simple geomedia webmap publisher data source. When i try to display the map on a mobile phone, the URL changes automatcally from gwmpub.asxp to mobile.asxp which fine and all displays well. However if i access it through the webpage where it is embedded in an Iframe, i get a REQUEST NOT ALLOWED message in webmap and no map is displayed. The message appears 4 times - once for the intial map and then one time each for 3 different queries.
Is there some security issue involved on a mobile phone with embedding map in an IFRAME?

I suspect it's because of a specific task being done during map init which might not be understood by the Mobile.aspx for some reason. I suggest to create a test HTML with Mobile.aspx layout embedded and identical map configuration in place. Then you can debug it from your desktop.

I've simplified the problem -
This works fine on computer using either gwmpub.aspx or mobile.aspx
<iframe name="IncidentIframe" id="IncidentIframe" height="450" width=100% src="http://www.mywebsite.com/portalsdk4/mobile.aspx?gpm=9db2159d-85cb-4dc8-adff-73f3c0e8dab7&PlantStatus"></iframe>
On a cell phone, if i use mobile.aspx no map is generated and if i use gwmpub.aspx i get the REQUEST NOT ALLOWED messages
However on a cell phone, if i just go directly to the website
all works fine. So the only issue is using the iframe. I have tried with different browsers on mobile and get same results (chrome and firefox)

found the problem - you can't use location.href to test URL of an iframe on a mobile phone! I had code doing this in helloworld.js (testing one of the arguments in the webmap url)

location.href is part of the problem. The other problem is specific to Safari (on iPhone) which is the only browser that gives me the problem.
You must also turn off cross site tracking
Yuu have to turn off "Prevent Cross-Site Tracking" in Safari on your iPhone
Settings>Safari>Prevent Cross-Site Tracking (set to off)
