We setup an Environment Variable with a URL and I'm trying to do an On Image Click Navigate to this URL.  Which works - however the Open In (New Window) is not working.


It opens in the same tab.

I have other Navigate to Form / Hyperlink Navigates and those all open in New Tabs.


Anybody else having problem with a Environment Variable opening up in a new tab?

Hi  AAschenbrener,


I built a quick form to test the scenario but didn't run into any issues, see video link, The environment has K2 Five (5.2) May 2019 CU Fixpack 20. Which K2 version do you have on the environment? Do you have any plans to install the latest K2 Five FP? Also, does it work with Chrome or Firefox?


-Create an environment variable (field type = Miscellaneous)

-Default value is

-Add a button click event with 'navigate to url' action (New Windows or Tab).

Hi AAschenbrener,


Out of curiosity, can you test without using the Transfer Data action?

I'm using the Navigate to URL rule (not transfer - sorry wrong wording)
