Organizations often have internal tools and systems, with private information or data, that can't be shared outside the organization.
Private plugins allows members of the organization to use organization-specific plugins, without having to share them with the rest of the Community.
- Any member of an organization can make and share a private plugin.
- Only team admins can publish plugins to the team's Community profile.
- Only organization admins can share publish plugins to the organization's Community profile.
Publish private plugins

Click on the account switcher in the top-left corner and select Plugins.
On the Plugins tab, Figma will load any plugins you have In development.
Click on the plugin you'd like to publish and select Publish from the options.
