Can plugin name on kibana UI is configurable?

We have created a plugin with name sampleDemo in kibana version 7.10.2. It has created folder plugins\sample_demo structure. I have below queries on the behavior:-

  1. Why it has created a folder structure with "underscore", even if we give "-" in plugin name, it creates with "_"?
  2. Which parameter is responsible for showing the name of plugin on kibana UI? Can it be configurable after creating a plugin?

Thanks,
Prashant

  1. Why it has created a folder structure with "underscore", even if we give "-" in plugin name, it creates with "_"?

Yeah, sorry about that. It's an internal policy of Kibana for consistency across the whole Stack. I'm not sure whether we need to enforce it for 3rd part plugins but all the plugins have to follow it for now.

  1. Which parameter is responsible for showing the name of plugin on kibana UI? Can it be configurable after creating a plugin?

in which part of the UI do you want your plugin to appear? Are you talking about a link in NavBar?
You need to register your app with core.application service as in this example kibana/plugin.tsx at 3195a544067b35f36ff41ca5c538fa2c3bf2de21 · elastic/kibana · GitHub
