In SystemLink 2020 and earlier, we can create a new navigation group by adding a folder which contains a config.json to
C:\Program Files\National Instruments\Shared\Web Server\htdocs\groups\
In SystemLink 2021, the folder above seems to be ignored. Instead, navigation groups are now defined in
C:\Program Files\National Instruments\Shared\Web Server\htdocs\configs\systemlink\config.json
This config file contains "defaultNavigationGroup" which seems to contain all NI SystemLink products (even if those products are not installed).
Questions: How do I add a custom group? Must I edit the pre-installed config file directly, or can I add a separate config file and leave the pre-installed one untouched?

So, I haven't personally added a new config file myself (and don't have login access to an updated server right this second), but there should be a weight token that decides which config file gets used (higher weight will get prioritized).
