How can I create a dialog box from a link in More section for issues screen in Jira7 Edited


I am working on a jira 7 plug-in to create a new web item in the More section of the issues screen. Upon clicking the web item- a new dialog box should appear and prompt the user to enter some details in a form.

I am able to create the new item in More list using web-section and web-item. Now I want to create a dialog box upon the user click. I wish to use Dialog2 here. Can anyone point me to a tutorial or sample code? 

PS: I am new to jira plugin development!

Thanks in advance!

To add some popup dialog you should:

1. Add menu item in some dropdown menu But do not put any link:

<web-item key="website_link" name="Company Web Site" section="some_section" weight="10">
        <label>My link</label>
        <link linkId="website_link"/>

2. Decide on which page will appear this menu with your link, to define proper "context".

3. Create new web-resource with proper context

4. Add javascript file to the web-resource with "click handlers" and "dialog open" functions. Somethong like this:

(function ($) {
$(document).ready(function () {
// step 1. put dialog HTML at the and of <body> element
// step 2. set click handler to your web-item
// step 3. call AJS.dialog2().show();

@Domenico Manzo This is working in issues view, but not in the issues search view. Have you faced anything like this before? Question - 696522#M227625. Thanks
