How to create new menu category under CMS=>Admin



I have a requirement to create new menu category under CMS => Admin section.

Below is the existing out-of-box menu

1) Access Rigths

2) Scheduled Jobs

3) Tools

So i need to create new category to above existing structure like, under this new category i'll create multiple .aspx pages as per my need.

4) Employee Management

I have tried to use below attribute but it is creating under "Tools" category.

Area = PlugInArea.AdminMenu,
Description = "User Login",
Category = "Employee Management",
DisplayName = "User Login",
Url = "~/Employee/UserLogin.aspx",
SortIndex = 1020)]

Can someone help on this?

Hi Suresh

The Category property is used only for GUI plugins, where the Area is ReportMenu.

GUI plugins, where Area is AdminMenu, are always kept in the Tools section. You cannot customized that grouping.
