Links in Custom Visuals for Microsoft Showcase (URGENT)

We’ve developed a custom visual which includes an <a> tag stretched out along the whole visual body. By clicking on the <a> container, the user should be navigated to another PowerBI report. Our solution works in the Power BI developer tools, but we’re experiencing some problems when we use the exported visual in Power BI:

The Link doesn’t work in browsers, probably because of sandboxing, which is not happening in dev tools.


How can we disable sandboxing for custom visuals?

We would highly appreciate, when You provide us with a solution for this problem.

The custom visuals framework development team introduced a temporary flag for disabling the sandboxing.

You can read more about it here:


In general, that message was posted in the following thread, where people are currently reporting issues they're having with the sandboxing and it seems at least some of them were resolved so far, so you might want to follow up on it.
