Is it possible to register CustomAction link to site settings from Element.xml from SPFx package (SPPKG) in SharePoint Online?

I am able to create following using Element xml file using SPPKG;

  1. Custom Lists with schema
  2. Content Types
  3. File provisioning to library

However, when I try adding a link to site settings using following code;

<CustomActionGroup Id="CustomGroup" Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.SiteSettings" Title="Group" Sequence="100" Description="" /> <CustomAction Id="CustomLinkActionId" GroupId="CustomGroup" Location="Microsoft.SharePoint.SiteSettings" Sequence="1" Title="Dashboard" Description="Dashboard"> <UrlAction Url="~appWebUrl/_layouts/15/viewlsts.aspx" /> </CustomAction>

Above code doesn't execute at all. The new app to be added is just stucks at adding state for a long time and finally breaks with error.

my questions above;

  1. Is it possible to add
  2. Anything is wrong in above code?

According to this documentation, you can't add items to the site settings menu. You can only add ECB items and items to the command bar:
