I want to add a new section with my own links to the customer account page (see pic) This section should be visible based on my custom extension of the customer entity.

How can I do that?

Create your own extension.
Let's call it StackExchange_Customer.
You will need these files:




<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="StackExchange_Customer" setup_version="1.0.0">
            <module name="Magento_Customer"/>


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<page xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" layout="2columns-left" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:View/Layout/etc/page_configuration.xsd" label="Customer My Account (All Pages)" design_abstraction="custom">
        <attribute name="class" value="account"/>
        <referenceContainer name="sidebar.main">
            <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Html\Links" name="customer_account_navigation_secondary" after="customer_account_navigation" template="Magento_Customer::account/navigation.phtml">
                <block class="Magento\Framework\View\Element\Html\Link\Current" name="customer-account-navigation-account-link-secondary"> <!-- duplicate this as many times as you need, just make sure the name is unique -->
                        <argument name="label" xsi:type="string" translate="true">Some link here</argument>
                        <argument name="path" xsi:type="string">module/controller/action</argument>

then run in the console php bin/magento setup:upgrade.

  • you didn't explain the controller part 'module/controller/action' what should it be? 'customer/account/custom' ? What class should that controller extend if so? etc

  • because there was no requirement for the controller action. I just explained how to add a link. I assumed the OP knows how to create a controller
