I want set the menuitem under Reporting menu.

I have created a new module. The module contains the graph view.

This graph view must be show under Reporting menu>>Accounting>>My graph view.

But I can not able to find the id of reporting menu and Accounting which is under reporting menu.

How can I find the ID of the menu item?

There is some confusion between qweb report and the reporting menu which shows graph. Since both name is report when I search the id for the reporting menu the result of the google is about the qweb report.

Give me some suggestions to find the id of the menuitem so that I can place my new graph view accordingly

The last answer is wrong. You have to go to Settings>Technical>User Interface> Menu Items.

Search there.

Select the record with left checkbox on list view. When you find it of course.

Press Action > Export

Select any column

And on exported file you are going to get the external_id

Go to 'menu items' in Settings > Technical > User interface

search for the menu you want to know id,

in form view, in the url you can see #id=xxx

That's the id of the menu item.

Kind regards.
