Add Custom Action Button

Jump to solution

To add a custom action link in Documents Actions[ where Copy To, Move To etc are present], I am adding

<div>
<a rel='' href='#' class='action-link' title='${msg('actions.document.backup')}'>
${msg('actions.document.backup')}</a>
</div>

in ...\WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\site-webscripts\org\alfresco\components\documentlibrary\documentlist.get.html.ftl

and

<actionSet id = 'document'>
<action type="action-link" id="onActionBackup" label="actions.document.backup" />
</actionSet>

in WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\site-webscripts\org\alfresco\components\documentlibrary\repo-toolbar.get.config.xml

and

actions.document.backup=Backup
message.backup.success='{0}' successfully backed up.
message.backup.failure=Couldn't backup '{0}

in \WEB-INF\classes\alfresco\site-webscripts\org\alfresco\components\documentlibrary\documentlist.get.properties

But I am not able to see the new link come up in Document Actions.

Is there anything that I am missing?

In order to create a new Action, there is no need to deal with the HTML part.

All you have to do is to perform the steps in the tutorial shared before.

The action rendering will be handled for you by Share.

Hi Tim,

Thank you for the reply. I have gone through this tutorial. 

My requirement is very simple. I just want to create a link[ say, "Publish"] that would move the actioned Upon NodeRef to a destination decided by me. Following this tutorial is getting a little overwhelming as I am really new to alfresco.

I'll be happy to get some hints for my requirement

I am new too so be careful when taking my words:
Assume you have setup your custom actions correctly, a reason of not showing up could be you have not configure it in share-config-custom.xml to decide whether it shows up in UI.

please read the part 

3. Update the share-config-custom.xml file to show a document library indicator

of Jeff's tutorial
