Link within custom html block

I have a dashboard where a custom html block shows data in a table.
One of the columns contain a URL link.
I have tried different targets for the link like _top and _parent but can only get it to open if I right click and open in a new Tab.

Hi @Lars_Andersson,

I have opened a ticket with our engineering team to add the pop-ups permission for this block. I will reach out when this request has been implemented.


Do you know if this could be a long wait?
I’m hoping to get the project I’m using this in done early next week.


Sorry! We try not to promise exact dates in order to stay honest with you. However, this is in the next release which will be out within a few weeks.

so is this fixed now?

Hi @Lars_Andersson,

That is correct; this was fixed with our latest Platform Update.

Thanks again for your patience and suggestions!

ok, any info on that ?, because I can’t seem to get it to work still.

any updates on this?

Hey @Lars_Andersson,

Good day. As Julia mentioned, this was fixed within the last release. If you’re still having issues, please provide more detail.

I have a link specified as follows in one of those blocks, but when clicking it, nothing happens.

<td><a href='/history?device=${row.deviceId}&t=${row.starttime}' target='_parent'>${row.start}</a></td>


While using the Chrome browser, when you click the link, do you get any errors within Chrome Dev Tools Console?

If so, please include screenshots.

Good idea.
I noticed this:

Hey Lars,

With this update, only _blank is supported. Allowing top-level navigation using _parent and _top provide a way to create malicious dashboards that we cannot allow.

ok, understood.
That works.
