Uploading your own add-ons

You can build your own add-ons to leverage systems in Jive. Once you build the add-on, upload it to Jive by using the Add-ons page.

Fastpath: User interface: Your avatar > Add-ons

When you first upload an add-on to your community, we recommend that you first restrict its visibility to yourself and, if necessary, test out your tiles by creating a secret group for them. This strategy reduces the impact on your community and gives you a chance to your add-on without setting up an entirely separate test environment.

To upload an add-on:

  1. In the user interface, click on your avatar in the upper right corner, and then click Add-ons.
  2. On the Add-ons tab, select All Add-Ons > Upload Package.
  3. Click Browse to find the Jive .zip package.
  4. If you're not ready to publish this add-on to your community, click Preview.
  5. To test your add-on, create a secret group and experiment with your add-on functionality before making it available to everyone.
