Ionic webview is not showing redirected url

I am using Ionic framework to create my hybrid applicatin.

I am launching external url from this webview. At first it was just the long url: and it worked fine.

after a while I started using IIS redirect module, and defined: ==> Then it stopped working. I suspect that there is some problem for the webview to use external url when it is redirected.

Here’s my config.xml:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
