Hey @Sunny_Sachan, you can use the NavBarExtensionsRegistryProvider to register your own button, the following is an example:

import { XPackInfoProvider } from 'plugins/xpack_main/services/xpack_info';
import { NavBarExtensionsRegistryProvider } from 'ui/registry/navbar_extensions';

function navbarButtonProvider(Private, $location, dashboardConfig) {
  return {
    appName: '',
    key: '',
    label: '',
    template: `<angular-directive></angular-directive>`,
    description: '',
    hideButton: () => true,
    disableButton: () => true,
    tooltip: () => '',

Hi Brandon,

Many thanks your solution worked well.!

It will be a lot more of your help if you could also help me knowing how to completely hide some of the left panel tabs like management, timelion and devtools from my plugin, if there is any provider for doing the same, please do let me know.

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Brandon,

Can I also hide some of the existing navbar buttons like share, Clone and Edit buttons through the above "NavBarExtensionsRegistryProvider", if yes can you please help how to do the same, else it would be a lot more of your help if you could tell me how to achieve the same.

Thanks in advance.
