Install the Plug-In on kintone

Plug-ins are used to extend the features of apps.
Users can use only the plug-ins that were installed by administrators.
To enable the use of a plug-in, the following two steps are required:

  • Install the Plug-In on kintone System Administration
  • Add the plug-in to each app

This page describes how to install a plug-in in kintone System Administration. A plug-in can be installed in either of the following ways:

  • Install from the Plug-in Marketplace
  • Install by importing a file

The Extensions page on the kintone official website introduces other additional plug-ins for variety of usages. See the page for details.

Install Plug-Ins from the Plug-In Marketplace

You can install Mailwise Connector and Garoon Scheduler Connector from Plug-in Marketplace for free.

  1. Open the system administration screen.
    Opening the System Administration Screen
  2. From "Other", click "Plug-ins".

  3. Click "Install" for the plug-in you want to install.
    "Not Installed" lists plug-ins that match one of the following conditions:

    • After the plug-in was installed and added to an app, the plug-in was uninstalled without being removed from the app settings.
    • The plug-in is used in an app that was imported and added from a template.
      This list appears only when a plug-in matches one of the conditions above.
      The listed plug-ins are not available to users until they are installed. Image
  4. Click "OK".

When the plug-in status becomes Installed, it means that the installation completes successfully.
Plug-ins that were installed from the Plug-in Marketplace are automatically updated to the latest versions.

Install Plug-Ins by Importing a File

For plug-ins that you created or those that are provided by kintone development partners, import the files to install the plug-ins.

  1. Open the system administration screen.
    Opening the System Administration Screen
  2. From "Other", click "Plug-ins".

  3. Click "Import". Image
  4. Click "Browse" to select the plug-in file (plug-in-name.zip) you want to import.

  5. Click "Import".

If the plug-in is listed as Imported Plug-ins, it means that the installation completes successfully.
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 installed the plug-in.

After your system administrator installs the plug-in, your app administrator adds the plug-in to apps on setting pages for each app. "Adding Plug-Ins to an App" page describes the instructions to do this.
