Extension id being ignored

Hi guys,

I am trying to open an extension by called dialogs.openExtension . However, when I installed it via my hosted-server, extensions are given a random id and the id from extension.json is ignored. Is there a way that I can persist the extension id or retrieve it by extension name?

Thanks.

Can someone from Contentful team please help understanding if this is a bug or not?

I’ve introduced an installation parameter to hold the dialog extension ID:

And then provided instructions on how to wire the two extensions together:
