data-target-options is not working in message card.

Here is my card json:

{ "message":"<b>test1<b>", 
 "style": "link",
 "id": "sldhfgsidhg-sdfhdfh-dfghdfgh",
 "title": "Test for checking.",
 "description": {
 "format": "html",

 "value": "<b>Add-on link:</b> <a href='#' 
data-target-options='{\"options\":{\"title\":\"Custom Title\"}, 
\"parameters\":{\"article_id\":\"1234\"}, {\"urlTemplateValues\": 
{\"article_id\": \"12345\"}}}'>Open Dialog with parameters</a>"
 "date": 1443057955792
"message_format" : "html"



I have capabilities as

"externalPage": [
{ "key": "test-page","url": "{baseURL}?article={article_id}", "name": { "value": "Test Click"}}

I want to pass article ID for external page link which should open in browser with JWT and  article_id as parameters. When I click on message card link, article_id is not replaced with value which i sent in data-target-options.

Can you guys please help me out.

Hi Ramesh,

You should put your parameters in message.metadata as described here and then it should work.

Thanks a lot. That works.

How can I use data-target in "url" in card.

Example: "url": "<a href='#' data-target='test-page'></a> "

This is not working for me.






I would like to target the link URL to external page which should be similar to "data-target", so that I can get user context in my plugin.

I see. It is not possible right now. We have an issue for target url (internal)
