How to Add Custom Item in AEM Dashboard Tools section


Community Advisor



I am curious about how can I add a custom item/option in the Tools section?. I have already gone through different blogs and documentation but haven't got a clear view of this. Can someone please guide me or give me a high-level understanding?.

The issue is resolved actually I was trying to overlay /libs/cq/core/content/nav/tools this node but it kept showing me unable to overlay the node but after restarting the AEM instance it worked.

But thank you for your reply.
