Class ManagementLink

  extended by hudson.model.ManagementLink
All Implemented Interfaces:
ExtensionPoint, Action, ModelObject
Direct Known Subclasses:
HudsonPrivateSecurityRealm.ManageUserLinks, WindowsInstallerLink

public abstract class ManagementLink
extends Object
implements ExtensionPoint, Action

Extension point to add icon to http://server/hudson/manage page.

This is a place for exposing features that are only meant for system admins (whereas features that are meant for Hudson users at large should probably be added to Hudson.getActions().)

To register a new instance, put Extension on your implementation class.

public ManagementLink()
Method Detail


public abstract String getIconFileName()
Mostly works like Action.getIconFileName(), except that the expected icon size is 48x48, not 24x24. So if you give just a file name, "/images/48x48" will be assumed.

Specified by:
getIconFileName in interface Action
As a special case, return null to exclude this object from the management link. This is useful for defining ManagementLink that only shows up under certain circumstances.
See Also:


public String getDescription()
Returns a short description of what this link does. This text is the one that's displayed in grey. This can include HTML, although the use of block tags is highly discouraged. Optional.


public abstract String getUrlName()
Gets the URL path name.

For example, if this method returns "xyz", and if the parent object (that this action is associated with) is bound to /foo/bar/zot, then this action object will be exposed to /foo/bar/zot/xyz.

This method should return a string that's unique among other Actions.

The returned string can be an absolute URL, like "", which is useful for directly connecting to external systems.

If the returned string starts with '/', like '/foo', then it's assumed to be relative to the context path of the Hudson webapp.

In case of ManagementLink, this value is put straight into the href attribute, so relative paths are interpreted against the root Hudson object.

Specified by:
getUrlName in interface Action
null if this action object doesn't need to be bound to web (when you do that, be sure to also return null from Action.getIconFileName().


public static ExtensionList<ManagementLink> all()
All regsitered instances.
