Installing & Viewing Plug-ins

A plug-in is a software module that you can install into an app to enhance its capabilities. Use the Plug-ins page in Kintone Administration to find, import, and install plug-ins. The page lists the name of each available plug-in, its description, status, and the apps that use it, if any. See Adding Plug-ins to an App for more information.
 
Installing Plug-ins

Users can only use plug-ins that are installed by their Kintone Administrators. To enable the use of a plug-in, the following steps are required:

  1. Install the plug-in on Kintone.
    • This step is performed by a Kintone administrator.
  2. Add the plug-in to an app.
    • This step is performed for each app by the individual app administrator.

Updating a Plug-in:

To update a plug-in that was installed by importing a file, re-import the file that contains the latest version of the plug-in. The import procedure is the same as when you initially installed the plug-in.
