How to make LTI global navigation link open in new tab?

Question asked by Jiri Erhart on Jul 24, 2018

Hi there,

 

I have stumbled upon a simple problem. I need to prepare a LTI integration with two links (one from course navigation and second from global navigation) which both open new tab when clicked on (instead of being open in an iframe). In the docs I found that `windowTarget` property should help me, however it only does the trick for course navigation link.

 

Would anyone know how to make global navigation link also open in new tab please?

 

My current LTI XML configuration is as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
