I hope you have understood and applied those steps easily. Now, before we create a UI Compoment Grid we need to create one custom admin menu for navigate to our custom grid. So, in this article, we will see how to create custom admin menu in Magento 2.

Let's get started!!

Follow the simple steps which are listed below.

First of all we need to Declare Route. To know more about Magento routing please review Magento official guide. As of now we are going to create route for admin area so we need to create routes.xml file under adminhtml folder.

Step 1: Create routes.xml at app/code/Devhooks/HelloWorld/etc/adminhtml/ and paste the below code.

saveCopyzoom_out_map
<?xml version="1.0"?>

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../../../../../lib/internal/Magento/Framework/App/etc/routes.xsd">
    <router id="admin">
        <route id="helloworld" frontName="helloworld">
            <module name="Devhooks_HelloWorld" before="Magento_Backend"/>
        </route>
    </router>
</config>

Step 2: Create menu.xml file at app/code/Devhooks/HelloWorld/etc/adminhtml/ and paste the below code.

saveCopyzoom_out_map
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Backend:etc/menu.xsd">
    <menu>
        <add id="Devhooks_HelloWorld::helloworld" title="Vendor" module="Devhooks_HelloWorld" sortOrder="10"
             resource="Devhooks_HelloWorld::helloworld"/>
        <add id="Devhooks_HelloWorld::grid" title="Manage Grid" module="Devhooks_HelloWorld" sortOrder="10"
             action="helloworld/index/index" resource="Devhooks_HelloWorld::grid" parent="Devhooks_HelloWorld::helloworld"/>
    </menu>
</config>

Explanation of the entities used in the above code:

  • id: is used as the unique identifier of a menu.
  • title: the menu title that will be displayed in the admin menu.
  • module: the module that I have created (Demo_Mymenu).
  • sortOrder: is used to set the placement of menu.
  • resource: a rule to identify which admin user can see this menu.
  • action: is used to link an admin controller
  • parent: is used to define which menu level it depends on.

Step 3: Now, open Command line in folder root of magento and run both commands

saveCopyzoom_out_map
php bin/magento cache:clean

Log in to the admin of your Magento 2 and you will see the new menu like the below screenshot.
