You need to register a backend module in ext_tables.php. In case of extbase 
modules, this can be done the following way:

if (TYPO3_MODE === 'BE') {                                                                          
    * Registers a Backend Module                                                                    
        'web',    // Make module a submodule of 'web'                                               
        'tx_yourextensionkey_m1',    // Submodule key                                                            
        '',        // Position                                                                      
            'Product' => 'list,of,allowed,actions',
            'access' => 'user,group',                                                               
            'icon' => 'EXT:yourextensionkey/ext_icon.gif',                                                       
            'labels' => 'LLL:EXT:'.
     * Add labels for context sensitive help (CSH)                                                  
'EXT:'.$_EXTKEY.'/   Resources/Private/Language/locallang_csh.xml');
