The create-custombutton node graphical representation is as follows:

To create a custom button for web applications, set values for the following nodes:

  • The owner node is required. It specifies users who can manage the custom button. For more information, refer to the Owner section. Data type: CBOwner (plesk_custom_button.xsd).
  • The properties node is required. It specifies behavior of the button. For details, refer to the Properties section. Data type: CBProps (plesk_custom_button.xsd).
  • The uri-components node is optional. It specifies parameters that are sent via the GET method to external web applications when clicking the button. Data type: CBUrlComponents (plesk_custom_button.xsd).

Important: When creating request packets, put nodes and elements in the order they follow in the packet structure.
