I need to create a quick action in contact list view to execute a function and display an info alert message. it was not possible for me to find a way to do this in lightning component.


in the link it is described that Mass action are only for Update- create.

Have any idea how to resolve this in a lightning way ?

As of Summer 18, I don't believe there is any way to do mass actions directly to a (Lightning) Action.

My current workaround was to create a Visualforce button, use StandardSetController to shuttle the IDs in a format for lightning:isUrlAddressable and lightning:navigation to understand and finally redirect to a lightning component (that takes up the entire page) with the new standard__component navigation parameter found in the new pageReference types documentation

P.S. your VF page with StandardSetController will be responsible for the redirect. You can use the VF sforce.one navigation and create a url that lightning:isUrlAddressable can understand.
