Custom services

The question is if vendors would like to change "Custom Services" to a
better name (with real service name).

The'll certainly do.

With current implementation they need to change the name directly in
.yml config file. Is that OK?

I'd guess so. But how does this match with translations ?

Currently, there's one shortcuts.yml in 'services' plugin, containing items
for system services and custom services. Better solution could be:

Create a new 'almost-empty' plugin custom-services (on webclient side). Such
plugin would basically contain only its shortcuts.yml, example one would look
like this:

url: /services?custom=1
groups: [ Services ]
tags: [ init, script, service ]
title: Custom Service
description: Manage custom service

(So it's pointing to standard services plugin, which contains the actual

Such plugin would be easily packaged in separate package
(yast2-webclient-custom-services), and thus also easily available to
include/exclude from control center. Vendor installing such package could
only edit this one file to show the name of vendor specific service directly
in the control center:

title: IBM Service
description: This is a big and blue service start and stop tool

(ideally also the icon, currently we expect them in global
webclient/public/icons directory)

Directory structure looks this way:

.../web-client/plugins/custom_services> ls -1

Looks like that such simple plugin without any real functionality is possible,
but it is registered only when it contains "app" directory (it can be empty,
though). Does anyone know if such requirement is necessary from the rails
side? Or how does control center code know about list of available plugins?
