Displaying Dialog2 outside of iframe addon

The deprecated dialog 1 modal window is able to target a defined web-panel for a Connect add on and display across the entire Jira window without issue.

In trying to implement a new Dialog2 modal and following the example laid out in the documentation, the dialog window shows within the add on iframe web panel and I am unable to figure out how to either have it shown across the entire window or target a web-panel as I did with the deprecated Dialog version.

Is there a way of doing this with the Dialog2 api?

Hi @Brian Kelley, have you found the solution for this?



@Glib Briia No I ended up giving up and just going with the Dialog 1 modal since it works. *shrug*

Thank you, I'll try that

Another solution is to use AP.dialog.create with a key that refers to modules in atlassian-connect.json.


"key": 'my-custom-dialog',
"chrome": false,
"size" : "large",
"value":"My custom dialog"


: [
"name": {
"value": "My custom dialog"
"key": "my-custom-dialog",
"url": "/my-custom-dialog-view",
"location": "none",
"context": "addon",

But unfortunately, it does not support queryparams or any kind of custom context nor does it have an on open event...

This is only a workable solution if you intend to open your app in a dialog from a button or link.
Then every main interaction with your app should happen inside the dialog's iframe.
