Configuring add-ons

Some add-ons expose configurable settings you can use to set up or specify preferences for the add-on. You should always read the documentation provided with the add-on to learn about such configuration options. The documentation is generally accessible from the Marketplace listing for the add-on.

You can access configuration settings, if available for a given add-on, from the Manage add-ons page. For some add-ons, the same settings are also accessible from a link in the administration menu. Both links open the same configuration page.

The Configure button appears only if: 

  • The add-on exposes configuration settings.
  • The add-on is enabled.

After making add-on configuration changes, the host application may need to be restarted for the changes to be applied. Consult the add-on documentation or test the change in a staging environment before making the change on a production system.  

To configure an add-on:

  1. From the application's administration menu, click the Manage add-ons link.
  2. Find the add-on you want to update by navigating the list or by entering keywords that match the add-on name in the Filter visible add-ons box. 
  3. Click on the add-on listing to open its details view.
  4. Click Configure.
    The configuration options appear.

  5. When finished making changes, click the Save button to apply your changes.

The administrative configuration options are provided by the add-on itself. The add-on is responsible for ensuring its own compatibility with the host application; if you encounter problems while attempting to configure an add-on, you should seek support from the add-on provider. For more information, click the Support and issues link in the add-on details view.
