There has been a lot of talk about tokenization behavior with regards to the Server ribbon in SharePoint 2010. I hope that this blog post can help some of you that are running into problems using tokens.
In general, here are the tokens that are resolved and where they are resolved:
Custom actions in SharePoint Foundation 2010 can be categorized in two ways: filtered and unfiltered custom actions. A filtered custom action is one that uses the RegistrationId and RegistrationType attributes, for example to target a specific list. An unfiltered custom action is one that does not use these attributes. Their behavior when handling URL tokens is different dependent upon the type of custom action being used to customize the Server ribbon.
The following table lists the tokens and how they’re resolved in different scenarios.
There are, however, two special cases when dealing with these URL tokens.
I hope this helps clear up some of the confusion around the topic!
