Add new action menu item to Windchill 11

Hallo all,

is there a way, to add a new action item unter "actions, new"  in the windchill ui?

I haven´t get it with the costumization guide.
I also found this article but it´s not for the right Windschill version:

https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS185927&art_lang=en&posno=1&q=adding%20fol...

Is there a similar article or does anyone knows how to solve my problem?

Thank you for your help in this matter.

Yours faithfully

Henrik Anders

The place in the guide is: ‌http://support.ptc.com/cs/help/windchill_hc/wc110_hc/index.jspx?id=WCCG_UICust_AddActionsHook_Define...

Basically you need define a new action and point to it from an actionModel (if I remember the naming right) that defines where in the UI you want it. This allows for reuse of the same action definition in different places.

If you enable the customization menu option (in your test system) there is even UI to explore and update action+actionModel and apply it without server restart instead of editing the XML files directly.

The recent thread on cad doc info page, remove related objects Parts (WTParts) contains an example of removing an existing OOTB menu action
