Plugins are Jitterbit- or user-provided applications that extend Jitterbit's native capabilities. For example, with plugins, you can add encryption or compression to files moving through the Jitterbit transformation pipeline.

- Cloud Studio: Plugins can be applied to an activity or called in a script using the

Whether a plugin can be used in any of these places depends on the specific plugin. Some plugins can be executed only within a script. Other plugins cannot be executed within scripts but can be executed only on certain sources/targets. The manifest file for a plugin specifies the plugin's parameters and where a plugin may be used.
To create a custom plugin, you can use Jitterbit's Plugin SDK. If you are using a custom plugin, you are responsible for the security of your custom plugin.
