Plugin Manifest File

A plugin is defined in IdentityIQ by the Plugin XML object that defines the parameters of the plugin. For example, features such as REST resources, Snippets, Settings. The Plugin object is defined in the manifest.xml file. This is a required artifact.

For more complex plugins that require support for other field types, and more dynamic behavior, such as drop down lists or password fields, use the advanced plugin settings to define a form or reference a custom plugin configuration file.

Dynamic behavior might include showing or hiding additional fields depending on previous selections. For example, if a user chooses basic authentication, a username and password field would appear, but, if oauth authentication is chosen, it might be more appropriate to show an access token field.
