Extension(s) point for IDEA status line

Answered

Hi *,

https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/206798345-Adding-comonent-to-right-of-status-bar-like-position-locked-memmonitor?flash_digest=17abaf068379acaaaa162d3f5bd669603929cb4a

found such 10-years old topic. Wonder whether something changed since it?
In short I would like to get my icon somewhere in status line, which will show current state of connection to my service. Next step is clicking to it should initiate something like dialog or menu with Enter Your Name/Password/Test connection/etc functionality.

Is it possible with kind of Extensions mechanics or need to hack IDEA CE sources?

Thanks in advance,
Oleg
