Problem with adding new links to "Configure Metadata"


This post is related to RA-1099 ticket.

We are currently trying to add Concept Dictionary links to Configure Metadata menu (we are using Manage App Definitions panel to test it), but we don’t know what to do in Add App Definition panel. Its easy to add new OWA to the Home Screen since there is nice documentation about that, but adding something new to Configure Metatada menu seems different and cannot be done analogically.

We will apprecieate any help, Tomek

//Edit: Problem is solved by adding following JSON into App Definition:

    "id": "owa.conceptdictionary",
    "description": "Concept OWA Dictionary",
    "order": 0,
    "extensions": [
            "id": "owa.conceptdictionary.adminGroup",
            "extensionPointId": "org.openmrs.module.adminui.adminGroups",
            "type": "group",
            "label": "Concepts",
            "icon": "icon-book"
            "id": "owa.conceptdictionary.adminLink",
            "extensionPointId": "org.openmrs.module.adminui.adminLinks",
            "type": "link",
            "label": "Manage Concept Dictionary",
            "url": "owa/conceptdictionary/index.html",
            "extensionParams": {
                "group": "owa.conceptdictionary.adminGroup"

Thanks @raff for help!

@tmarzeion, could you add this to this documentation, e.g. alongside the Adding Actions to the Patient Summary page?
