What is the section name for the FishEye/Crucible Help dropdown menu?

I'm trying to add some custom Help links to FishEye/Crucible. I was able to follow the instructions in https://developer.atlassian.com/display/FECRUDEV/FishEye+Web+Item+Locations to add a web item to system.header.item (see Figure1), but I want to be able to add web items to the Help dropdown menu (see Figure2). Does anyone know the name of that web section?


Figure 1 system.header.item


Figure 2 - What is the name of this web section?

If Atlassian would provide the source for FishEye/Crucible, then I could determine the web section by inspecting the appropriate .xml file. But, as Atlassian states: Full source is not available due to embedded code Atlassian cannot expose.

Hi Kevin,

I took a look at the source and the help menu doesn't appear to be pluggable at the moment. However, you can add items to the adjacent "cog" menu using the web item location system.header.admin.local

If you really need to augment the help menu, I'd recommend raising an issue in the FishEye project at https://jira.atlassian.com to add a pluggable section to it. As a (slightly nasty) fallback you could bind some javascript to the page using a web-resource that dynamically adds a link - but I understand wanting to do it the "right way". 

Sorry I couldn't be more help.
