Non-Embedded app opens in Admin after install, opens in new window on click in Admin

While testing  the installation of a non-embedded app, I found the following...

 

  • Immediately after installation, the app loads in a frame in the store admin (not what I want)
  • When the app name is clicked in the Apps page in the store admin, it opens in a new tab (this is what I want)

I don't understand why the different behavior.

Can someone tell me how to get the app to load in a new tab in both scenarios described above?

 

Thanks

You must redirect on your app landing page after successfully install.

@DivinityWebS 

I am switching the app from embedded to non-embedded and did not think to change the redirect URL assuming that Shopify would display the page in a new tab/page as it does when clicked in the store admin.  It does not.

Thanks for pointing that out.

Hi @CaveDiver ,

 

I have the same issue as you and it's been driving me mad! Which redirect URL did you change?

If you could shed some light it would be much appreciated, I'm working to a tight deadline and can't figure it out 🙏

Hey,

So the general flow to the install logic is that whenever someone opens or installs your app, you check on your backend you already have the token for this app, if not, you store access-token for the store and redirect it on your dashboard UI as an authorised user.
