 Hi all, out team has new requirement, that needs to add a menu item when right click Work Items  in "Team Artifacts" View.

I have searched all the plugins in RTC which package like "com.ibm.team.workitem.*", and looked for extentions "org.eclipse.ui.popupMenus", but haven't found.

Anyone got some ideas?

It is fairly easy to find the plugins extending org.eclipse.ui.popupMenus.
  1. Setup your SDK as described in https://rsjazz.wordpress.com/2013/02/28/setting-up-rational-team-concert-for-api-development/
  2. Create you own plugin with the extension point.
  3. In the plugin Editor right click that extension point and select "Find references"

You will find several RTC plugins extending it.


However, the easiest way to create your own menu extension is to create an object contribution. In order to do so, you have to find out which object is exposed in the menu.

Try using Plugin Spy (Shift-Alt-F1) or YARI to find out what object is exposed.
