I'm attempting add a page for my collection of apps to the Central Admin quick launch in SharePoint 2010:

alt text

Following SharePoint's out-of-the-box behaviour, a custom action group like this should be what's needed:

    Title="My App"
    <UrlAction Url="/_admin/myapp/centraladmin.aspx"/>

This does show on the main Central Admin home page. However not in the quick launch.

I've noticed that Nintex Workflow can get their page in and I think this XML should be all that's needed. But it doesn't work!

Any ideas?

Apart from RequiredAdmin="Delegated" in the CustomActionGroup, please make sure following:

  1. You can use Scope = Web or higher (Web makes sense)

  2. Make sure you have AutoActivateInCentralAdmin="TRUE" in the FEATURE element of the feature

Have you tried adding RequiredAdmin="Delegated" to your CustomActionGroup?

Have a look at this as well

No luck I'm afraid. RequiredAdmin isn't even documented - I'm not sure what that does. – Alex Angas Jan 18 '11 at 22:45
