Remove Custom Plugins

Filter by IDE
Select the Progress AppBuilder client you are currently using for development.

IDE

You can remove the custom Apache Cordova plugins that you have imported in your app when you no longer need them.

When you add a custom plugin to your app, you cannot choose for which build configuration to enable it. The plugin is enabled for all build configurations. To exclude the app from your application, you need to remove it from your app.

Custom plugins are not global. You need to remove custom plugins from every app individually.
