To create a Lightning component action, select Lightning Component from the Action Type drop-down list when you create either a global or object-specific action.
Lightning component actions can’t call just any Lightning component in your org. For a component to work as a Lightning component action, it has to be configured specifically for that purpose and implement either the force:LightningQuickAction or force:LightningQuickActionWithoutHeader interfaces. You can find out more about configuring custom components in the Lightning Components Developer Guide.
You can add Lightning component actions to an object’s page layout using the page layout editor. If you have Lightning component actions in your org, you can find them in the Salesforce1 & Lightning Actions category in the page layout editor’s palette.
