Locations to add rel="noopener noreferrer"

Our team's implementation of ESRI ArcGIS Enterprise uses SF SAML authentication to automatically log users into their ESRI accounts. User's access their ESRI maps by clicking a link from a separate web page and the ESRI map opens in a new tab. Unfortunately, when the ESRI map tab finishes loading, it closes the existing tab.

We've had success in adding rel=”noopener noreferrer” to the <a href> html (example below) for the issue where the ESRI Map tab opens in a new window but closes the existing tab. Frustratingly, we do not have the ability to add this tag for one of our webpages. 


In looking for alternatives, we hypothesized that we can add rel=”noopener noreferrer” to a <a href> link that the ESRI tool loads. So we’re looking for recommended locations for where ESRI uses a <a href> link to direct the user to our specific map so we can add the rel=”noopener noreferrer” attribute to see if that resolves our issue.

A potential example could be on the classic login page (we use the classic login screen instead of the default login screen) where the user clicks login and is brought to the ESRI Map. If we could get confirmation on where that <a href> line of code is in our enterprise version, we could add rel=”noopener noreferrer” and see if that solves our problem.

Alternatively if there are other location where an <a href> link to our map is used, we’d be happy to try those as well.
