Someone around to give me a hint how to add a menu section in the rancher UI which renders the Link like the Longhorn addon does

The Longhorn product is a rancher application and it's presence is the menu is explicitly built in. Good news though, you can create custom side nav sections with links, just like Longhorn, by creating CRDs. See https://rancher.com/docs/rancher/v2.6/en/admin-settings/branding/#custom-navigation-links for docs. I think in either 2.6.4 or the next 2.6.5 release there's a form to help create the CRD.

most integrations with rancher apps, specifically those listed in
Cluster Tools
, will have worked the same way for a while. I think the side-nav crd method came in recently (after similar requests like yours)

Thank you this is good information. Is there a way to populate a div, i.e. embed the content as opposed to pop out to a new window?
