Installing plugins

Installing from the Store (with Internet access)

You can install officially published plugins from the plugins store.

  • Go to the application menu, Administration > Plugins
  • Select the Store tab
  • Browse or Search for the plugin you’re looking for
  • Click Install

This installation method works requires that your server has HTTPS connectivity to the Internet.

Installing from a Zip file

To install plugins that are not on the official store, or if your DSS server doesn’t have Internet access, you need first to obtain the Zip file of the plugin.

For official plugins, obtain the Zip archive from https://www.dataiku.com/community/plugins.

  • Go to the application menu, Administration > Plugins
  • Select the Advanced tab
  • Click on Choose File and enter your plugin
  • (Optional) If you are updating a plugin you’ve already installed, select the Is update checkbox.
  • Click Upload
  • Follow the restart instructions if any

Installing from a Git repository

  • Go to the application menu, Administration > Plugins
  • Select the Advanced tab
  • Enter the repository details and click on “Clone”

This method creates an “export” of the Git repository; it does not preserve the history. To clone a plugin from a Git repository with history and ability to push your changes, see Git integration in the plugin editor.
