Updating Plugins

When a plugin has an update available, you will see a notification at the top of the "Plugins" page. Click on the link provided to update all plugins. Alternatively, you can individually update plugins by clicking on the three dots on the right side of the plugin card. Plugins requiring updates will have an orange dot on the left side of the card.

Update Workflow Plugins

After you update your plugins on the “Plugins” page, you will be able to update the plugins in each of your workflows.

When to update the plugins in an active workflow?

Not every plugin update needs to be pushed down to your active workflows. If your workflow is running as expected, then there is no urgent need to update the plugins in your workflow. Updating the plugins in your workflow may be necessary should you wish to take advantage of a new or improved plugin capability, such as a newly added or improved action.

Navigate to the Workflows page to see if any of your workflows have available plugin updates. Similarly to the “Plugins” page, each workflow will indicate the number of available plugin updates in an orange dot on the left side of the workflow card.

Plugins can only update in unpublished form

To preserve the integrity of your existing active workflow, your plugin updates will be held in the unpublished changes until you review them. Plugin update notifications on the “Active Workflows” page will direct you to the Workflow Control Panel to push those changes when you're ready.

To apply plugin updates to your workflow:

  1. On the Workflows page, browse to the workflow you want to update and click the three dots on the right side of the card. Click Update Plugins. The plugin update window appears.
  2. The plugin update window displays all workflow steps that have plugin updates available. If possible, InsightConnect indicates which steps are eligible for automatic plugin updates.
