Subject RE: '[PROPOSAL]' Third party plugins
Date Thu, 13 Dec 2012 22:21:58 GMT
Currently , we haven't discussed access based scenario for a plugin . But yes , this won't
be a tough thing to incorporate. We can enable /disable a UI plugin based on admin or a normal
user .

Regards,
Pranav

This is a silly question, Do we allow all plugins to have same access role?  
OR some plugins have admin access, and some plugins for users only? 

Thanks,

Sonny

How does administrator enable/ disable the plugin if it is misbehaving because of bug or let's
say after upgrade?
