A web item is rendered as either a button or a link on a drop-down menu, based on the web section to which the item is added.
To add your own web item to an existing web section of one of Jira's issue
operations bar locations, your web item must include a
section attribute whose
value is one of the sections specified in the
Existing Web Sections of the Issue Operations Bar Locations diagram.
For example, to add a web item module that defines a new item in the 'operations-operations' section, your web item module would contain:
<web-item ... section="operations-operations" ...> ... </web-item>
Web items added to the 'operations-top-level' section will appear in the top
level of the

For example, your web section module would contain:

Adding new web items to your own sections is similar to the method
above for adding new web items to
existing web sections. However, specify the value of your web section's
attribute as the value of your web item's
section attribute. Hence, following
on from the previous example, your web item would contain:
<web-item ... section="my-custom-more-actions-section" ...> ... </web-item>
To customise the position of your own web items or sections throughout the issue
operations bar, add a
weight attribute to your
and adjust its value with respect to Jira's existing web items or sections.
For web items added to the 'operations-top-level' section, lower weight values result in buttons appearing closer to the left of the user interface.
For web items and sections which target the 'More Actions' drop-down menu, lower weight values result in these items/sections appearing higher up the drop-down menu.
For web items added to the 'transitions-all' section, lower weight values result in these items appearing closer to the left and then higher up the 'Workflow' drop-down menu.
Note that these values are overridden by
opsbar-sequence property keys, which
can be specified by a Jira administrator through the administration console.
See Customising workflow transitions on the 'View Issue' page for details.

If you wish to create a 'panel label' (i.e. the collapsible heading which
appears at the top of the panel), define a
