View the plugin.xml

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

IDE

You can review the plugin.xml of a plugin to determine whether AppBuilder will enable additional plugins or Android permissions during build.

When you build your app, AppBuilder automatically resolves any dependencies listed in the plugin.xml of a plugin. For example, if the plugin depends on another plugin or requires a permission, AppBuilder enables it.

AppBuilder runs this operation during the build and does not update the app properties.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that your preferred AppBuilder client is running and you are logged in.
  • Verify that you have opened the code for your app in AppBuilder.
