Web Section

The Web Section plugin module allows add-ons to define new sections in application menus. Each section can contain one or more links. To insert the links themselves, see the Web Item Module.

Example

{
  "modules": {
    "webSections": [
      {
        "location": "atl.jira.view.issue.right.context",
        "weight": 50,
        "name": {
          "value": "My Web Section"
        },
        "key": "my-web-section"
      }
    ]
  }
}

Properties

key

Type
string
Required
Yes
Description

A key to identify this module.

This key must be unique relative to the add on, with the exception of Confluence macros: Their keys need to be globally unique.

Keys must only contain alphanumeric characters and dashes.

The key is used to generate the url to your add-on's module. The url is generated as a combination of your add-on key and module key. For example, an add-on which looks like:

{
    "key": "my-addon",
    "modules": {
        "configurePage": {
            "key": "configure-me",
        }
    }
}

Will have a configuration page module with a URL of /plugins/servlet/ac/my-addon/configure-me.

location

Type
string
Required
Yes
Description

The location in the application interface where the web section should appear. For the Atlassian application interface, a location is something like the coordinates on a map. It points to a particular drop-down menu or navigation list in the UI.

Product location documentation:

name

Required
Yes
Description

A human readable name.

conditions

Description

Conditions can be added to display only when all the given conditions are true.

params

Type
object
Description

This object represents a map of key/value pairs, where each property name and value corresponds to the parameter name and value respectively.

Example

{
  "params": {
    "someOtherProperty": "someValue",
    "myCustomProperty": "myValue"
  }
}

tooltip

Description

The internationalised text to be used in the link's tooltip.

weight

Type
integer
Defaults to
100
Description

Determines the order in which the web section appears in the menu or list.

The "lightest" weight (i.e., lowest number) appears first, rising relative to other items, while the "heaviest" weights sink to the bottom of the menu or list.

Built-in web sections have weights that are incremented by numbers that leave room for additional sections, such as by 10 or 100. Be mindful of the weight you choose for your item, so that it appears in a sensible order given existing items.
