External link in default.xml - open in new tab target="_blank" not working.

Contributor

Need to provide an external link in our Splunk app menu that opens in a new browser tab.

This does not work.

I am sorry but why would you downvote me for pointing out that there is still no solution and that this is a redundant question?

Works for me per the original question, as noted on this HTML tutorial site:

Oh, and the XML snippet when putting the URL below panel filters on a dashboard panel for a table:

      </input>
          <html>
             <body>
               <a href="http://www.google.com" target="_blank">Google</a>
             </body>
           </html>
      <table>
        <title> ....

In Splunk 7.2.x opening an external link in a new tab from the app navigation bar works. Example data/ui/nav/default.xml file including a link to the Splunk Developer Portal:

<nav search_view="search">
  <view name="search" default='true' />
  <view name="datasets" />
  <view name="reports" />
  <view name="alerts" />
  <view name="dashboards" />
  <a href="http://dev.splunk.com/" target="_blank">Splunk Developer Portal</a>
</nav>

Tested with Chrome 71.0.3578.98, Firefox 64.0.2, Safari 12.0.2 on macOS 10.14.2.

Splunk even adds a little symbol to the link to indicate that it opens in a new tab.
