How to add custom links in OpenMRS home page? (using migratoin)

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007fdde4497b30>

Hi All,

We want to add new custom app links in the OpenMRS home page through config/migration scripts (not using UI https://demo.openmrs.org/openmrs/referenceapplication/manageApps.page) . It will add new App links shown/hidden based on privileges & redirects to different link.

We have found one option to do this by adding new extension json entry in appframework_user_app table.

Please let us know if there any other better option to to add new link in home page.

Our goal is to add the link with no/less code changes to existing modules & easy to implement.

Thanks all.
