Have you added your navigation link in SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/YOUR_APP/local/data/ui/nav/default.xml ?

This is working on my env. Can you please try it? If it is not working then can you please share Splunk Version details?

<nav search_view="search" color="#5CC05C">
  <view name="search" default="true" />
  <a href="dashboards" target="_blank">Admin</a>
  <collection label="Admin">
<a href="dashboards" target="_blank">Admin</a>  </collection>
</nav>

then it is the issue with versioning this feature has been added after 7.1. I have tested it in 7.2 it is working as what I mentioned above.

Yes, I have also checked in Splunk 7.1. That was a bug and resolved in Splunk 7.2. I didn't found Ticket ID in known issues of 7.1 and fixed issue in 7.2. Once I'll get the ticket ID, I'll share with you. 🙂

The above stanza I pasted will create a new tab from your dashboard once you click on the link. However this below one will create new navigation tab in the SplunkAppbar.

    <collection label="Custom Dashboards">
            <view name="your view name />
    </collection>

This stanza you have to add in your app SPLUNKHOME/etc/apps/YOURAPP/local/data/ui/nav/default.xml
