Plugins Installation

To install, update and remove plugins from the user interface, you must have these requirements:

  • The plugin directory must be writeable by the web server user
  • The Zip extension must be available on your server
  • The config parameter PLUGIN_INSTALLER must be set to true

Only administrators are allowed to install plugins from the user interface.

By default, only plugin listed on Kanboard’s website are available. You can change the directory URL in the config file.

Since Kanboard v1.2.8, the plugin directory is disabled by default for security reasons.
  • There is no code review or any approval process to submit a plugin.
  • This is up to the Kanboard instance owner to validate if a plugin is legit.
