Add the repository#

In your plugin manager, go in the Settings tab.

Add repository

  • Fill required information with :

    • Name : Name of the repository. You can choose, for instance Plugin 3Liz XXX.

    • Press OK if your plugin does not require any authentication. If your plugin requires one, read below.
    • Press Reload repositories to fetch the content of the new repository. This does not install the plugin, it's only adding a remote server where to find plugins.
  • Before going to install the plugin, do not forget to :

    • use the experimental checkbox if the plugin is experimental or you won't be able to see it in the next step
    • use the checks for updates on startup checkbox to let QGIS informs you automatically at a regular interval about any plugin updates
  • Go back to the All tab to see all available plugin and search for the plugin name in the search bar. You should be able to install it.

The plugin might be protected by a login/password.

In the dialog below, click Edit in the Authentification section.
