Redirects.json not sending parameters in redirect

Hello,

Ghost Version : Latest, updated just before trying redirects
Host : DigitalOcean Droplet

I’ve recently started a project where I need to redirect links from my site to external links, but the redirect does not include the parameters that I am including. Here is my redirects.json :
[ { "from": "/ref/offer-name-here", "to": "https://www.external-site.com/products/product-name-here?ref=reference-name-here", "permanent": true } ]

Anything after the ? does not send. It just sends to the link :
https://www.external-site.com/products/product-name-here

Is there a way to include the reference parameter?

This isn’t possible at the moment because of this outstanding issue:
