Concept | Plugin management on self-managed instances#


Dataiku Cloud users should reference Plugins on Dataiku Cloud for plugin management.

Most of plugin management happens in the Plugins section of Dataiku. Let’s take a look at what you can do here.

Plugin store#

The first thing you will see is the plugin store homepage. The plugin store is a repository of extensions created by or for Dataiku. You can use the plugin store to:

  • Browse and search for available plugins.

  • Find plugins by tag or support coverage.

  • View plugin details.


The plugins available to you in the store depend on your version of Dataiku.

Plugin page#

For every plugin in the store, you can click See Details to open the plugin page. This page has three different tabs: Summary, Settings, and Usages.

View all projects that use the plugin. This information is useful when you are deciding whether or not to update or remove a plugin.

Plugin customization#

If you have plugin installation permissions, you can also customize a plugin by converting it to a development plugin.

Customized plugins will not be compatible with future updates from the store. For more information on plugin development, see the Plugin Development course in the Developer learning path.

Adding more plugins#

Plugins that are not in the plugin store can be added with the Add Plugin option. You can choose to:

  • Develop a plugin within Dataiku.

  • Upload a .zip file that packages a plugin.

  • Fetch a plugin from a Git repository.
