If you want this menu item looks like button("Create" button as example)

Create plugin as described in and add to


<web-panel key="test-menu" location="com.atlassian.jira.plugin.headernav.left.context" weight="35">
        <resource type="velocity" name="view" location="test-menu.vm"/>

create test-menu.vm file in /resource folder with a content

<li id="test-menu">
    <a class="aui-button aui-button-primary aui-style" href="">Test</a>

Edit the properties file as detailed at and - you need to look for the "opsbar" properties in the jpm file to copy into
