Managing published editor add-ons

The following sections describe common actions you may need to perform to maintain and update add-ons that you've published.

Open the Marketplace SDK control panel

The publication settings for your add-on and the appearance of its G Suite Marketplace listing are controlled through the G Suite Marketplace SDK control panel. After you've enabled the G Suite Marketplace SDK for your add-on's script project, you can return to the SDK control panel at any time.

To open the SDK control panel, follow these steps:

  1. Open the add-on's Cloud Platform project.
  2. In the console's left navigation, select APIs & services to open the API dashboard.
  3. In the Dashboard panel, there is a list of APIs your project as enabled at the bottom. Select the G Suite Marketplace SDK link.

This opens the SDK Overview panel. You can configure the SDK from the Configuration and Publish panels. After the add-on is published you can find some usage metrics in the Usage panels.

Open the Chrome Web Store developer dashboard

The publication settings for your editor add-on and the appearance of its Chrome Web Store listing are controlled through the Chrome Web Store developer dashboard. After you've configured your Chrome Web Store listing for your add-on's script project, you can return to the developer dashboard at any time.

To see your add-on listing configuration using the Chrome Web Store developer dashboard, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Chrome Web Store developer dashboard.
  2. Find your add-on in the item list and select it.

The Store Listing page opens when you select your add-on. You can review and update the listing details from this page. The dashboard also has additional information about the use of the add-on on the Stats, Pricing and Distribution, and Ratings pages available in the left-nav of the dashboard.

Checking publication status

You can check the publication status of your add-on in the Chrome Web Store by visiting the Chrome Web Store developer dashboard. If the "Status" column says "Published", your add-on is available in the store.

For the G Suite Marketplace, you can check the publication status by doing the following:

  1. Open the G Suite Marketplace SDK control panel.
  2. Select the Publish panel.
  3. At the top of the panel is a Publish status section. Your add-on's publication status is presented here.

Update your editor add-on

To update an editor add-on that you have already published:

  1. Open the add-on project in the script editor.
  2. Make the necessary changes to your code.
  3. Save a new version of your project:
    1. Click File > Manage versions.
    2. Optionally provide a version description, then click Save New Version.
    3. Close the Manage Versions dialog.
  4. Update the G Suite Marketplace listing:
    1. Open the G Suite Marketplace SDK control panel and select the Configuration panel.
    2. If you made changes that added or removed scopes from your add-on project, update the scopes listed in the OAuth 2.0 scopes section to match the new scope list exactly.
    3. In the Extension section, update the add-on project version to match the new version number you just created.
    4. Update any other aspects of the G Suite Marketplace listing as needed. For example, you may wish to update the Application description to describe the recent change.
    5. Click Save changes.
  5. Update the Chrome Web Store listing:
    1. In the Apps Script editor, click Publish > Deploy as add-on (or Sheets, Docs, Slides, or Forms add-on).
    2. In the dialog that appears, change the add-on's details as needed, select the new version of your script, then click Update store item. (If you change the add-on's name, make sure you also change the name of the Apps Script project to match, as the project name is shown in the authorization dialog.)
    3. In the store listing draft window, make any required changes to the Chrome Web Store listing.
    4. Click Publish changes, then click OK in the dialog that appears to republish the add-on in the Chrome Web Store.
