Open a popup from Atlassian addon connect

Hi there,

I developped an Atlassian addon connect using nodeJs, I need to open a popup when I click on a link from my addon. This is a snippet of my descriptor.json

"modules": {
"webItems": [
"name": {
"value": "Creer un client"
"location": "jira.project.sidebar.plugins.navigation",
"weight": 200,
"context": "addon",
"key": "module-create-customer",
"target": {
"type": "dialogmodule",
"options": {
"key": "module-create-customer-dialog"
"conditions": [
"condition": "user_is_logged_in"
"dialogs": [
"key": "module-create-customer-dialog",
"name": {
"value": "Atlassian de merde"
"url": "/test-dialog",
"options": {
"size": "large",
"header": {
"value": "Creation d'un customer"

According to the documentation, it seems right. The problem is, when I click on my webItem, the dialog appears and immediatly, I'm redirected to a 404 not found page.

After a couple hours investigating, I found the issue. My webitem is a generated as a html link, so the Javascript behind open the dialog but the html is still interpreted and so the browser follows the link


Would you have any suggestions ? 

Thank you in advance

Best regards
