Preference Widget is an add-on setting provided to your extension and acts as one of the widget's locations. This location refers to the Preference tab next to the General Settings tab of the installed extension in your desk portal.
The main purpose of this location is to get the configurations from the end-user. The extensions configured in this location are visible to users with the Support Administrator profile even if the extension visibility setting is not exclusively enabled. This location is enabled only if all other configuration is completed.
To set this preference widget, follow the instructions given below:
- Open plugin-manifest.json file of the corresponding extension.
- Update the value of the location key as "desk.extension.preference" in Widget attribute.
- Save the file.
- Pack and publish the extension.
Now, you can see the widget build as the new tab named Preference next to the General Settings and Configuration tabs.
