How to create SCCM right click tools

When considering console extensions for Configuration Manager (2007 or 2012) there are several components to consider

  • Console Extension Type – many different types of extensions are documented (or will be documented) in the Configuration Manager SDK. These types include Actions, Forms, Views, Nodes, and Management Classes. In this Blog post we will be focusing only on the Actions type.
  • Console Component GUID – this GUID corresponds to the console component on which you would like to add the custom Action.
  • Extension Folder – Each custom extension will be created and placed in a specific location for console consumption. This location will vary depending on why type of console extension is being created and what platform it is being created for (2007 or 2012).
  • XML File – each console extension is made up of a custom XML file.
  • Action Executable – typically each Console Action extension will have an executable (script or otherwise) that will be called from the XML file.
