You need to specify an addMenuItem directive and associated "view" in
your package browser zcml to enable you to add your index objects via
the ZMI.  Look at zope/app/catalog/browser/configure.zcml as a starting
point, e.g.

<addform
    name="AddTestIndex"
    label="Add a test index"
    schema="..interfaces.ITestIndex"
    permission="zope.ManageServices"
    content_factory="..WorkSpace.TestIndex"
    arguments="field_name"
    keyword_arguments="interface field_callable"
    />

 <addMenuItem
    title="Test Index"
    description="My Test Index"
    class="..Workspace.TestIndex"
    permission="zope.ManageServices"
    view="AddTestIndex"
   />
