ConfigMgr allows for great extensibility to perform right click actions. You can find information on this here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc143056.aspx. Those of you that have done this before know that the first step is digging through the adminconsole.xml file to find the correct GUID in order to add your right click action. Below is a tool that nicely formats the GUIDs for the Root Node, Scope Pane and Results Pane.
In order to use the documentor:
1. Locate your adminconsole.xml file usually located in <ConfigMgr Path>\AdminUI\XMLStorage\Consoleroot\adminconsole.xml and make a copy to adminconsoletemp.xml in a temporary folder. DO NOT EDIT THE ORIGINAL.
2. Copy the attached adminConsoleDocumentor.xsl to the folder with your adminconsoletemp.xml
3. Add the following line to adminconsoletemp.xml after the first line <?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”utf-8″?>
<?xml-stylesheet type=”text/xsl” href=”adminConsoleDocumentor.xsl”?>
4. Save the file and load it in Internet Explorer. Your output should look like this:
