When you create component, add a property called 'componentGroup' with a value 'customApp'

Now, in the page where you want to enable the same, click on 'design mode' of the side kick (3rd Icon at the bottom) and select the customApp checkbox and click ok.

Once you are back on the edit mode of the page, you should be able to see 'customApp' in the side kick.

As @bsloki mentioned, 

1. Your component should belong to a component group

2. Select that component group in design mode

3. Now in edit mode you will see you component in sidekick

Hi

Supporting to what Lokesh and Praveen said,

Please have a look at this helpx artice which will let you create a component and get added to SideKick :- https://helpx.adobe.com/experience-manager/using/creating-touchui-component.html

// here under the Create an AEM 6 Touch UI component section, we can see that there is a Group option in create component dialog box.

Group: The group in the side kick where the component appears. Enter General (any name). (The herotext2 component is located under the General heading in the Tocuh UI side rail. Also appears in General in the classic view sidekick.)

Please have a look at this post as well :- http://help-forums.adobe.com/content/adobeforums/en/experience-manager-forum/adobe-experience-manage...

I hope this would help you.

 

Thanks and Regards

Hi All,

My custom component is coming fine in General group. 

But my requirement is that I need a Custom group in ParSys (Design).

Hi Lokesh,

Thanks for your reply.

I changed the componentGroup as CustomApp. 

But still now my customgroup is not displaying in ParSys (Design) in sidekick, as shown in below screenshot.

Let me know How can I attach my package file (CustomSideKick-1.0.zip) .

That is all you need to do. If its not showing up, try to clear browser cache.

It is not allowing to upload .ZIP file.

Invalid file type .zip for attachment. Please cancel and try again without the attachment.

Kindly find the screenshot of node.

Before uploading change .zip to .txt and then upload

Change jcr:title value from echo to Echo (first letter caps) , it should work
