Web-section on admin plugin menu


I create add-on on Jira Cloud and I have a question.

Is it possible to put my own section on 'admin plugin menu' with title?
I would like to get such effect as, for example APPLICATION LINKS



Thank you in advance for all your answers
Best Regards

Ok. I found a cure for this issue :-)

I used adminPages module in my descriptor file. It should look like this:

                "location": "admin_plugins_menu",
                "weight": 50,
                "key": "my-section",
                    "value": "Section name"

                "url": "/page",
                "location": "admin_plugins_menu/my-section",
                "key": "my-page",
                    "value": "My Page"
<web-section key="com.example.section" name="Section Title" location="system.admin" weight="150">
    <label key="com.example.section.label"/>

<web-item key="com.example.item" name="Plugin Name" section="system.admin/com.example.section"
    <label key="com.example.item.label"/>

You can use different weight-values to define the order of your section in relation to the other sections.

I just noticed, that you asked for Jira, my answer is for Confluence, but the concept is the same. You may have to fiddle with the right location names: https://developer.atlassian.com/jiradev/jira-architecture/web-fragments/administration-area-locations

For Connect-Addons it is:





This is OnDemand plugin. I build plugin based on atlassian-connect.json descriptor file.

I read this documentation all the time, but I didn't know that in webItem I have to put full path in location attribute with my new section parent.
Like in your example, should be


not only



So, ok, I got this. Now I have a problem that my page opens on my add-on's host product, not in on jira product. When I change webItem context from "addon" to "product", I get 404 error.

Problem is similar to http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25131475/atlassian-connect-web-item-url-issue,
unresolved btw.

I would be grateful for a cure for this issue :-)
