Urbancode Download plugins from the server

Hi Team,

There should be an option to download the installed plugin that is currently installed on the UCD server.

https://localhost:8443/#automation/automationPlugins

https://localhost:8443/#automation/sourceConfigPlugins

This is a good backup feature to have during upgrades, or in case if teams are developing internal plugins or very old UCD plugins if some teams are still using. Teams can easily download the plugin to inspect any weird behavior etc. without touching the backend server directory.

Thanks.

    As (almost) all versions of the plugins can be downloaded from the official repository (urbanode.com or GitHub) it wouldn't add value to UCD functionality.

    Admins should be allowed to download the installed plugins from the UI.
    This functionality is good to have and currently not available.

    For e.g., currently if teams find an issue with a new functionality of the plugin they can only obtain the plugin from the agent's var plugin folder to investigate (need knowledge of this) but for that deployment has to happen first to that agent.

    It would be good to have this download feature in the UI itself so UCD can allow download of the plugins similar to how agents, relays, cli zip can be downloaded from the Tools section.

    This is not a required functionality but a good to have feature.

    Thanks.
