Default settings

A plugin is an extension to the Login AM run time and GUI for the configuration of specific functionality, i.e. the Deployment plugin enables the installation of software on a target machine. A plugin also specifies the default settings for the plugin.

To edit the default options of the Plugin Settings navigate to Options -> Plugin Settings as depicted above.

For each plugin, a tab is shown in the package and collection views. On these tabs, the plugin settings can be overridden, i.e. on the deployment tab for a package, we can specify a different installation folder than what is configured in the deployment plugin by default.
