Adding/Deleting Plug-Ins (System Administration)

By adding plug-ins to Kintone apps, you can extend the features of the apps.
Users can use only the plug-ins that were added by administrators.
To enable the use of a plug-in, the following two steps are required:

  • Add a plug-in to the Kintone Administration.
  • Add a plug-in you need to each app and configure that plug-in.
