How to add items to menu bars (e.g.: Manage Alerts).


  • All NPM versions
  • All Orion versions


My Dashboards provide menu bars with shortcuts to Orion Web Console views. The default menu bars include Home, and a menu bar for each installed Orion Platform product.

Click My Dashboards to show the default menus.



You can add items to a menu bar and this article explains how to add an item not present in Available items.



  1. After choosing a menu bar, go to the Edit Menu Bar page.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click ADD.
  3. In the New Custom Menu Item pop-up, fill out the fields. This example shows Manage Alerts (URL is the webpage link into your environment) and click OK.
  4. The new item is now added in Available Items, click SUBMIT.
  5. Move the item in Selected Items and then click SUBMIT to customize your menu bar.
