Why did the iframe of the addons got restricted to not have access to the parent URL?


We've been using a custom addon in Jira that got the URL of the issue the user was viewing from document.refferer. Seems like 1-2 days ago this was changed and that field is no longer available for me to use. 


I cannot find any attribute that gives me the URL of the issues I was viewing. Can anyone assist me with how do this? 


My addon was pointing at a static HTML file that sat in S3, which did an API call to an AWS Lambda endpoint which served as the backend. I wasn't using the Express.js framework that's officially supported by Atlassian.
