Managing published widgets

The Published Widgets page displays a listing of all published widgets. When permissions are set, the Permissions column contains the keyword Has restrictions. The default permission is for the published widget to be displayed in the Widget Catalog.

The Published Widgets page has all actions available in the toolbar above the list. You can search, sort, and filter to affect which widgets are shown. To display more widgets that match the search, use the pagination at the bottom of the table. All possible actions are available from the Actions menu. Actions that are available only for either single or multiple select are enabled only when they can be used.

To manage published widgets, go to Widgets > Published Widgets.

These actions are available from the Actions menu:

Import Imports a zip file with published widgets.

You cannot import a published widget if the standard or tenant widget upon which the published widget is based is not available. These widgets are skipped during the import.

The import of a standard widget with no framework in the manifest will fail and widget will not be imported.

For a single import only (not a zip file or a file in a zip file), an error message indicates when the import fails.


Some actions are displayed or enabled only if you click Copy Permissions and permissions exist in the clipboard or if the widget has permissions.
