Add-ons add additional functionality to ZAP.
They have full access to all of the ZAP internals, and so can provide very powerful new features.
You can dynamically install add-ons from the online Add-on Marketplace via the Manage Add-ons dialog.
You can typically add and remove add-ons to and from the ZAP UI without having to restart it.
Add-ons can provide context sensitive help which is dynamically integrated with the help file.
If you are reading this page via a ZAP help file (as opposed to reading it online) then any help pages associated with the add-ons you have installed will be available under here.
Add-ons are assigned a status which may be one of:
|Release||which indicates they are of high quality and fit for purpose|
|Beta||which indicates they are of reasonable quality but may be incomplete or need further testing|
|Alpha||which indicates they are at an early stage of development|
To make an add-on available to ZAP it must be in one of the following locations:
plugindirectory located in the ZAP's installation folder;
plugindirectory located in the ZAP's user folder.
|UI Overview||for an overview of the user interface|
|Features||provided by ZAP|
|Marketplace||to browse the add-ons online|
