Managing Plugins in an Organization

You have even more control over how you use and share plugins within an Organization.

You can create plugins that are only available to your Organization. Or share your favorite plugins with the wider Figma community.

Organization Admins can manage which plugins are available to members of your Organization. This includes whitelisting, installing and uninstalling plugins.

Publish Plugins in an Organization

If you are in an Organization, you have two options for publishing plugins:

Private

You can publish a plugin privately to an Organization. This allow members of your Organization to view and use your plugins. People from outside of your Organization won't be able to access these plugins.

Members can find Private plugins in the Organization section of the Plugins Page:

Any member can privately publish a plugin to the Organization. We list that member as the plugin's Publisher, instead of the Organization.

Public

If you are an Organization Admin, you can publish a plugin publicly.

We list thee plugin on the Figma Plugin Page, with the Organization as the Publisher.

Anyone inside or outside of your Organization can install those plugins.

Change a Plugin's Access

You can change a plugin's access, once you have published it. You can change a Public plugin to a private plugin, or publish a private plugin publicly.

  1. Go to the Plugins page.
  2. Click the three dots next to the Plugin you want to change:
  3. You can then choose to set the plugin Access as Private or Public.

If you're changing a plugin from private to public, it will need to go through our review process. Learn more about publishing plugins in our Making Plugins article.


Browse Organization Plugins

If you are part of an Organization, you can view a list of your Organization's plugins.

This includes:

  • Plugins that Organization members create and are private to your Organization. You'll see the specific member's name as the Publisher.
  • Plugins created by your Organization that they have published publicly.
  • Public plugins that an Organization Admin has whitelisted.

From the Plugins Page, click the See all link in the Organization section: 

You can Browse, Find and Install Plugins via your Organization Space. As well as in your Personal Space.

You can move between your Organization and Personal Space. Use the switcher in the top-left corner of your account: 

  • Any plugins you install in your Personal Space will be available in your Organization space. And vice versa.
  • You can use any Organization plugins you install in your personal space.

Whitelist Plugins in an Organization

We take the privacy and security of our users very seriously.

Every Plugin that's listed on the Figma Plugin Page will go through a review process. This ensures they meet our recommendations around privacy and security.

Learn more about the approval process in our Review Guidelines article.

In an Organization, you can also enable a Plugin Whitelist. This gives you even greater control over which Plugins your members have access to.

  • You can still use plugins that have been privately published to the Organization.
  • Organization members can only install public plugins that are on the whitelist. They will still be able to view public plugins that aren't on the whitelist.
  • There isn't currently a way for members to request a plugin, in Figma. They will need to contact an Organization Admin directly to add a plugin to the whitelist.

Install Plugins for an Organization

If you are an Admin in a Figma Organization, you can choose to install a plugin for the entire Organization.
