Adding plug-ins by importing plug-in files

To use plug-ins provided by developers, such as Kintone development partners, add the plug-ins to Kintone by importing them from plug-in files. Do not import any plug-in files unless you trust the source.

  1. Click the Settings icon (the gear-shaped icon) at the top of Kintone, then select Kintone Administration.
    Opening the Kintone Administration Screen

  2. Click Plug-ins under Other.

  3. Click Import at the upper left of the screen.

  4. Click Browse and select the plug-in file to import ("***.zip").

    • Import the plug-in file in zip format.
    • The maximum file size for a plug-in file that can be imported is 100 MB.
  5. Click Import.

When the plug-in appears in the Imported Plug-ins list, it means that the plug-in has been successfully added.
If you want to update the imported plug-in, import the latest version of the plug-in file. The steps to import the file are the same as the steps to import a new plug-in file.

After the plug-in is added by a Kintone Administrator, app administrators need to add the plug-in in the App Settings of individual apps.
