Activate List v3

You can activate the List v3 plugin (com.glide.ui.list_v3) if you have the admin role. This plugin activates related plugins if they are not already active.

Before you begin

Review the compatibility conditions for List v3. Incompatible lists display in List v2, even when List v3 is enabled. If the instance contains both v2 and v3 lists, the differences in behavior and appearance may impact user experience. Evaluate how much work is required to test list compatibility.
Note: List v3 may impact performance and should be tested thoroughly prior to activation on a production instance.

Role required: admin

Provides components required for List v3, including REST endpoints and Angular components.

Procedure

  1. Navigate to System Definition > Plugins.
  2. Find and click the plugin name.
  3. On the System Plugin form, review the plugin details and then click the Activate/Upgrade related link.

    If the plugin depends on other plugins, these plugins are listed along with their activation status.

    If the plugin has optional features that are not functional because other plugins are inactive, those plugins are listed. A warning states that some files are not installed. If you want the optional features to be installed, cancel this activation, activate the necessary plugins, and then return to activating the plugin.

  4. (Optional) If available, select the Load demo data check box.

    Some plugins include demo data—sample records that are designed to illustrate plugin features for common use cases. Loading demo data is a good policy when you first activate the plugin on a development or test instance.

    You can also load demo data after the plugin is activated by clicking the Load Demo Data Only related link on the System Plugin form.

  5. Click Activate.

What to do next

Consider enabling List v3 for related lists. List v3 is disabled for related lists by default.
Note: You may need to refresh your browser after you activate the plugin to see List v3.
