Applicable to Sisense on Linux and Microsoft Windows
Sisense offers both free and premium add-ons. You can find free add-ons in the Sisense Community, and free and premium add-ons are located in the Sisense Marketplace.
The Sisense Marketplace contains add-ons that have been developed and are supported by Sisense.
If you have deployed Sisense on Linux, all certified add-ons in the Marketplace are now supported except for Embedded Images.
Keep in mind that every version upgrade in Linux will update all certified add-ons to the version compatible with the release. Any manual change that you make to certified add-ons will be overwritten. Sisense recommends not modifying certified add-ons. If you want to change them, duplicate the add-on, rename it (including the internal label), and modify the duplicate version of the add-on. The upgrade process creates a backup copy of all add-ons, which can be restored if needed
To install add-ons in Sisense, you need to download the add-on and extract its content into the relevant location depending on what type of deployment you have, Windows or Linux.
To install an add-on:
- Download the add-on.
- Extract the contents of the .zip folder to the relevant directory below.
Note: If the folder does not exist, create it prior to extracting the .zip file.
For V7.1 and earlier: C:\Program Files\Sisense\PrismWeb\plugins
For V7.2 and later: C:\Program Files\Sisense\app\plugins
- Verify that the add-on is listed in Sisense under Admin > Plug-ins.
Enabling and Disabling Add-ons
From the Add-ons page, you can enable or disable your add-ons. This is useful for testing new plug-ins or troubleshooting issues with your dashboard. When a add-on is disabled, its functionality is no longer available in the Sisense.
To enable or disable an add-on:
- In the Sisense, select Admin > Add-ons.
- Toggle the Enable/Disable switch to activate or deactivate an add-on.
To activate/deactivate multiple add-ons, select the checkbox of the relevant add-ons. When you select any of the checkboxes, an Enable/Disable switch is displayed in the menu bar. Toggle the switch to enable or disable all the selected add-ons.
After enabling or disabling an add-on, Sisense rebuilds your add-ons list. The next time you refresh your dashboard, the add-ons will be enabled or disabled as defined in the Add-ons page.
