Is there any way to add a specific action button in view module for an entity I've created programmatically.

More specifically, I want to make a search of my entity in view, and having beside each result of the entity an action button . Currently, we can configure 'delete/edit' button. I want to add a specific one.

PS: I'm using Drupal 8 and i created my module an entity with drupal console.

  • What is this button will do?

Here is the solution I found for my problem: Let say that my entity is named Entity. I created a new operation in my controller implementing my business logic , say we'll call it operation_name. Then, in my EntityListBuilder.php , I surcharged the operation getDefaultOperations, specifying the name of my operation, the url and title : public function getDefaultOperations(EntityInterface $entity) { $operations = parent::getDefaultOperations($entity); $operations['operation_name'] = array( 'title' => $this->t('operation_title'), 'weight' => 30, 'url' => new Url('url',array( 'medecin' => $entity->id(), ) ) ); return $operations; }

Back to my view configuration: In adding fields section I will add "Action link" , we will notice that the operation "operation_name" was add to the others (edit and delete).
