Publishing an extension
An extension can be created for an internal organizational purpose or to meet a common business need. In either case, an extension can only be made available to users after it has been published.
Types of extension publishing
- Private: When you build an extension for a personal or organizational purpose, you can publish the extension privately.
- Public: When you want the extension for a wider range of users, you can host your extension on Zoho Marketplace so that it's available to all Zoho users for installation and use.
How to publish an extension
