      Description

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Create a glossary and a few entries
      2. Enable glossary autolinking on filter, and entries
      3. Use one of the glossary item in some content
      4. View the content from the app
      5. Click on the item name which was made a link by the filter

      Expected

      • You are sent to the app addon glossary (which does not exist at this stage)

      Actual

      • The link is open in a browser window, and the user needs to log into the website.

      We have two solutions here. Re-using the delegate used in notifications that maps an external link with a local addon, and parsing the content. Or developing some sort of SSO which allows a user to be automatically logged in when the open a link from the app. The first solution is the best in terms of user experience in my opinion.

      This should be applied to module links (glossary, forum, etc.) and also to course completion status (we might have links to other courses reports).
