Currently, the UI handles the logic of creating / launching your file manager application behind the scenes. There should be a mechanism to launch an application and then redirect to its endpoint once it has fully come online via a call to the API server.
This could be done most simply by adding an optional "redirect" boolean parameter to our launch application API call. Once the stack has started via the API call, if redirect is true, we check the endpoint list for the first value, get its url and return an HTTP 302. This will tell the client's browser to redirect them to the URL specified in the "Location" header.
This ticket is complete when the above functionality is possible via an API call the "start application".
