How to add 'Plugins' drop down menu item

I added the lines below in the atlassian-plugin.xml expecting that the "AAA" menu item appears

in the Administration Plugins drop down menu under the 'Source Control'.

But it does not.

What steps should I take?

<web-item key="AAA" section="admin_plugins_menu/source_control">
<label key="AAA"/>

Try something like this:

<web-item key="AAA" section="admin_plugins_menu/source_control" weight="9999">
<label key="AAA"/>
<link linkId="AAA_link">/secure/admin/aaa.jspa</link>

This should provide a link to /secure/admin/aaa.jspa in the drop down.

I found that the problem is due to the JIRA version of 5.0.

Admin Plugins Menu cannot be added to JIRA 5.0.

On the latest JIRA 5.1.5, the same plugin works fine.
