How to use WebSectionProvider?

I have a JIRA plugin with dynamic menu items using WebItemProvider-interface (com.atlassian.plugin.web.api.provider.WebItemProvider).

This works excellent, but only for menu items in menu, but not for menu sections.

My atlassian-plugin.xml contains plugin module for "WebItem" and it works:

<web-item-provider key="xxx" ....

                   class="package.classImplementsWebItemProvider" />

                                                 

My intention was to add a plugin module for "WebSection" into atlassian-plugin.xml.

But i don't know how.

I tried with:

<web-section-provider key="yyy" ....

                    class="package.classImplementsWebSectionProvider" />

                                                 

But it doesn't work. Maybe there is no tag: <web-section-provider.                                                

Has anyone an idea how to solve the problem with menu sections?

Thanks in advance!

Thank you Jobin for your answer.

But my web sections and web items need to be created dynamically. That is, I can not define it in atlassian-plugin.xml. To create dynamic web items, there is an interface WebItemProvider, whose implementation of the method Iterable <WebItem> getItems (Map <String, Object> context) returns a list of the web items. It is working. But I still need web sections to which these web items are assigned.

As a Jira power user, I was at first doubtful that Trello could benefit my workflow. Jira already uses boards (ones you can customize!), so why would I even need to use Trello?! In this post you will...
