New search screen breaks navigation to a general page

Hi all,

I’ve got an app button that shows up in Advanced Search and it is defined in the descriptor like this:

        "location": "jira.navigator.pluggable.items",
        "url": "jql-search-extensions-extended-search",
        "context": "page",
        "name": {
          "value": "Extended JQL Search"
        "tooltip": {
          "value": "Go to Extended JQL Search"
        "icon": {
          "width": 16,
          "height": 16,
          "url": "/static/img/jse_logo_color_16x16.png"
        "weight": 100,
        "key": "jse-search-view-extended-search-button",
        "conditions": [

The url is a key of a general page defined in the descriptor. The above works fine in the old search experience and when you click on the icon, you are directed to the app’s screen:

There is a new search experience that’s not fully rolled out yet and that’s where the navigation doesn’t work. The button is simply a no-op:

It looks like a Jira bug that should be fixed, doesn’t it? We wanted to release the button to production but now I’m not sure how many customers have the new search experience and when the bug is fixed.

I would also like to ask if Atlassian is looking into this. This will affect a number of apps here at Appfire as this is rolled out to more users.
