Version 29

 

Intro

In the Appstore, you can select apps to add to your Domo instance, view information on all installed apps, and remove installed apps. The Appstore is composed of a main page divided into several tabs, as follows:

Name Icon Description
Home appstore_home_tab_icon.png Shows you featured apps, QuickStarts, new and trending apps, and connectors. 
Search appstore_search_tab_icon.png Lets you search for specific Appstore content using a variety of filters and search options.
Installed appstore_installed_tab_icon.png Shows all apps that have been installed in your Domo instance. 
Asset Library appstore_asset_library_tab_icon.png Shows both pending and live apps you have created as well as custom app designs.
Store Manager appstore_manage_tab_icon.png Allows you to see all apps that have been pushed to publication and choose whether to grant or deny publication for apps in this list. You must have a default security role of "Admin" or a custom role with the "Manage Appstore" grant enabled to access this tab. For more information about security roles, see Managing Custom Roles.

You can switch between tabs by clicking the icon for the desired tab in the left-hand navigation pane. If the pane is not visible, you can click alert_center_expand_names.png to open it. 

If you click a thumbnail for an app or connector in the Home or Search tab, a Details/install page opens for the app or connector. For more information about connectors, see Connecting to Data with Connectors.

You are not limited to one version of an app per company Domo instance. For example, multiple users could each have their own version of the Facebook QuickStart app. Each user's individual version of the Facebook QuickStart app would contain cards powered up by his or her personal Facebook data.

Option buttons
