app Bridge: how to control whether app extensions open in a new tab?

I have a few types of app extensions in my embedded app.  Some insist on opening in a new browser tab, others insist on opening in the same tab.

 

I would like to control this behavior, for functionality and consistency.

 

  • Bulk action links open in a new tab (so the back-breadcrumb is kind of meaningless).
  • Admin links open in the same tab.

How can I control this?

 

Thanks and Cheers, jb

Did you manage to find a solution? I am trying to implement a link that opens a new tab for an external URL, but it keeps opening inside the embedded app.

Hi Kiyo,

 

I never did even get a reply to this query. Do let me know if you come upon a solution yourself
