Enable Add-ons for External Contributors

If you want external contributors to your community to be able to use an add-on, you can enable access.

The setting to enable external contributor access is only visible if your community has enabled externally accessible groups under System > Settings > Externally Accessible Groups. All external contributors in your community will be able to access an add-on you enable: you can't restrict access to members of specific groups.

Apps that are bundled in add-ons will be displayed in the App Launcher when external contributors click the Apps tab.

To enable an add-on for external contributors:

  1. Click your avatar in the top right and select Add-ons.
  2. From the Add-ons tab, select All Add-ons > Installed.
  3. Click the gear icon next to the add-on you want to grant access to.
  4. Select Enable for External Contributors. You'll see the Externally Accessible label in the list of Add-ons. To disable again, just change the setting back to Disable for External Contributors.
