Adding a custom tool

This procedure uses the example scenario from Adding a subsection for similar tools.

  1. Right-click the handle (blue dot) of the Comment row for the section that you want to add tools to and click Add Sibling Below.

  2. Add a new page row.

    1. In the Action column, select Append and Map to.

    2. In the Target column, enter .pyRulesAndToolsList.

    3. In the Relation column, select a new page.

  3. Complete four Set rows for the top-level expandable section. In the Action column, select Set and then enter the following:

    Row Target column value Source column value
    Be sure to include the quotation marks
    1 .pyNote The tooltip text to be displayed in Access Manager; a short description of the tool function.

    For example: "Retrieve number of items in worklist."

    2 .pyPrivilege The privilege name.

    For example: "CanUseWorklistCounter"

    3 .pyClassName The privilege class name.

    For example: "@baseclass"

    4 .pyLabel The tool function name to be displayed on Access Manager.

    For example: "Worklist items counter"

  4. Save the data transform.

The preceding example creates a custom tools section with a subsection for Worklist tools, as shown in the following figure:

This data transform renders a section in Access Manager as shown in the following figure. (Refresh the display to see the changes.)

In Access Manager, secure the tool. For more information, see Editing tools authorization for a single access group.
