Custom UI will not be reloaded with config

Your team recently landed support for custom UI macros. It is possible to use MacroConfig with a custom UI and access it’s content through the context variable in resolvers. However, changing configuration does not trigger a rerendering of the custom UI. This in turn means that a custom UI macro needs a page reload to work properly. This can only be regarded as a bug and there are multiple ways to fix this bug (IMHO).

  • always rerender the custom UI when a config change is made (the default for UI kit)
  • provide a setting in the manifest for when to reload
  • emit a reload event to the IFrame containing the macro

I would greatly appreciate it if this bug would be closed soon.
All the best

Hey Lennard,

This is an important request—I’ll forward it onto the team and in the meantime I’ve also opened a ticket on our public tracker (

Cheers for raising it and we should have a response soon.
